Spatial and vertical patterns in the tidepool fish assemblage on the island of O`ahu
The microtides, wave regimes, and relative isolation of the Hawaiian archipelago may provide unique environmental and biogeographic effects that shape the structure of tidepool fishes. We sampledExpand

Sound production and spectral hearing sensitivity in the Hawaiian sergeant damselfish, Abudefduf abdominalis
SUMMARY Sounds provide important signals for inter- and intraspecific communication in fishes, but few studies examine fish acoustic behavior in the context of coevolution of sound production andExpand

Acoustic behaviors in Hawaiian coral reef fish communities
Coral reef fish communities often include hundreds of sympatric species which are of great inter- est to reef conservation and fisheries managers. Long- term acoustic monitoring of fish sounds can beExpand

Sound production to electric discharge: sonic muscle evolution in progress in Synodontis spp. catfishes (Mochokidae)
Elucidating the origins of complex biological structures has been one of the major challenges of evolutionary studies. Within vertebrates, the capacity to produce regular coordinated electric organExpand

On the attraction of larval fishes to reef sounds
Several recent studies have shown that some larval fishes will approach underwater speakers that broadcast reef noise, leading to the hypothesis that larval fishes use acoustic cues to locate reefsExpand

Structure and function of the stomachless digestive system in three related species of New World silverside fishes (Atherinopsidae) representing herbivory, omnivory, and carnivory
We explored possible diet-related specializations in the digestive tract of stomachless fishes by summarizing the diets, verifying the absence of a stomach, and comparing gut lengths, microvilliExpand

Pulse sound generation, anterior swim bladder buckling and associated muscle activity in the pyramid butterflyfish, Hemitaurichthys polylepis
SUMMARY Acoustic behaviors are widespread among diverse fish taxa but mechanisms of sound production are known from relatively few species, vary widely and convergent mechanisms are poorly known. WeExpand

Sound production and mechanism in Heniochus chrysostomus (Chaetodontidae)
SUMMARY The diversity in calls and sonic mechanisms appears to be important in Chaetodontidae. Calls in Chaetodon multicinctus seem to include tail slap, jump, pelvic fin flick and dorsal–anal finExpand

Comparison of feeding guild structure and ecomorphology of intertidal fish assemblages from central California and central Chile
The hypothesis of ecological and morphological convergence of the taxonomically distinct intertidal fish assemblages from central California, USA, and central Chile was tested by comparing theExpand

Fast drum strokes: Novel and convergent features of sonic muscle ultrastructure, innervation, and motor neuron organization in the pyramid butterflyfish (hemitaurichthys polylepis)
Sound production that is mediated by intrinsic or extrinsic swim bladder musculature has evolved multiple times in teleost fishes. Sonic muscles must contract rapidly and synchronously to compressExpand
