Hydrodynamic Trail-Following in Harbor Seals (Phoca vitulina)
Marine mammals often forage in dark or turbid waters. Whereas dolphins use echolocation under such conditions, pinnipeds apparently lack this sensory ability. For seals hunting in the dark, oneExpand

The ageing of the low-frequency water disturbances caused by swimming goldfish and its possible relevance to prey detection.
Wakes caused by swimming goldfish (Carassius auratus) were measured with a particle image velocimetry system and analyzed using a cross-correlation technique. Particle velocities in a horizontalExpand

The photomechanic infrared receptor for the detection of forest fires in the beetle Melanophila acuminata (Coleoptera: Buprestidae)
Abstract We recorded from single units of individual sensilla of the thoracic infrared (IR) pit organs of Melanophila acuminata. When the organ was stimulated with a thermal radiator whose emissionExpand

Morphometric and ultrastructural comparison of the olfactory system in elasmobranchs: the significance of structure-function relationships based on phylogeny and ecology.
This study investigated the relationship between olfactory morphology, habitat occupancy, and lifestyle in 21 elasmobranch species in a phylogenetic context. Four measures of olfactory capability,Expand

Lateral line reception in still- and running water
Abstract. The lateral line of fish is composed of neuromasts used to detect water motions. Neuromasts occur as superficial neuromasts on the skin and as canal neuromasts in subepidermal canals.Expand

Lateral line system of fish.
The lateral line is a sensory system that allows fishes to detect weak water motions and pressure gradients. The smallest functional unit of the lateral line is the neuromast, a sensory structureExpand

Seal whiskers detect water movements
How do pinnipeds orientate themselves under water? As most pinniped species feed in conditions under which visibility is drastically reduced, for example at night, at great depths or in murky waters,Expand

Neurobiology: Hydrodynamic stimuli and the fish lateral line
Sensory systems need to distinguish biologically relevant stimuli from background noise. Here we investigate how the lateral-line mechanosensory system of the fish senses minute water motions in theExpand

Artificial lateral line with biomimetic neuromasts to emulate fish sensing.
Hydrodynamic imaging using the lateral line plays a critical role in fish behavior. To engineer such a biologically inspired sensing system, we developed an artificial lateral line using MEMSExpand

The time course and frequency content of hydrodynamic events caused by moving fish, frogs, and crustaceans
SummaryIn the present study the time course and spectral-amplitude distribution of hydrodynamic flow fields caused by moving fish, frogs, and crustaceans were investigated with the aid ofExpand
