Behavioral and neurophysiological assessment of lateral line sensitivity in the mottled sculpin, Cottus bairdi
Summary1.The unconditioned feeding response of the mottled sculpin, Cottus bairdi, was used to measure threshold sensitivity of the lateral line system to a vibrating sphere as a function of stimulusExpand

Abstract. It has been reported that superficial neuromasts, a type of lateral line organ, mediate rheotaxis in fish. These studies used Co2+ at 2 mmol l–1 for 3 h to ablate the entire lateral lineExpand

Lateral Line Sensory Ecology
Because all fish experience night, perpetually dark, or turbid waters, there is strong selection for the use of non-visual senses in all fish species. Anatomical diversity hints that the lateral lineExpand

Non-visual feeding behavior of the mottled sculpin, Cottus bairdi, in Lake Michigan
SynopsisField and laboratory experiments indicate that the mottled sculpin, Cottus bairdi, feed in the dark. Blinded sculpins feed on a variety of motile prey in the laboratory and show stereotypedExpand

Nearshore energy subsidies support Lake Michigan fishes and invertebrates following major changes in food web structure.
Aquatic food webs that incorporate multiple energy channels (e.g., nearshore benthic and pelagic) with varying productivity and turnover rates convey stability to biological communities by providingExpand

Challenges to Deep-water Reproduction by Lake Trout: Pertinence to Restoration in Lake Michigan
ABSTRACT Restoration efforts for lake trout Salvelinus namaycush in Lake Michigan are increasingly being focused on re-establishment of the species in deep water. This focus is based in part onExpand

Pteropod abduction as a chemical defence in a pelagic antarctic amphipod
THIS study documents an example of an invertebrate that cannot defend itself chemically (an amphipod) increasing its chances of survival by capturing and carrying a species that can (a pteropod).Expand
