We discuss possibilities of using coherent structure models in turbulent shear flow description. The nonuniversality of different classes of such flows is directly attributed to the nonuniversality of hydrodynamic instability mechanisms. This is fully explored in discussions of free shear flows, where dynamical instabilities are important and in wall-bounded flows where longitudinal vorticity system and its nonlinear consequence are at play.
