Ready and Waiting: Delayed Hatching and Extended Incubation of Anamniotic Vertebrate Terrestrial Eggs
Some anamniotic aquatic vertebrates lay eggs in a terrestrial habitat that is hostile to the survival of hatchings or larvae. These terrestrial eggs are ready and able to hatch at a particularExpand

Vertical Distribution Patterns
The chapter describes the vertical distribution pattern of intertidal fishes and the characteristic habitat types of the rocky intertidal zone. Two groups of fishes can be found in the intertidalExpand

Metabolism during Delayed Hatching in Terrestrial Eggs of a Marine Fish, the Grunion Leuresthes tenuis
California grunion, Leuresthes tenuis (Osteichthyes: Atherinidae), leave the ocean to spawn in the sand following extreme high tides in summer. Eggs develop out of water and are able to hatch withinExpand

Respiration in Water and Air
The chapter examines the features of the habitat that may have led to the evolution of air-breathing among amphibious intertidal fishes, and then describes the behavior and physiology of theExpand

CHAPTER 13 – RECONSTRUCTING ANCESTRAL TRAIT VALUES USING SQUARED-CHANGE PARSIMONY: PLASMA OSMOLARITY AT THE ORIGIN OF AMNIOTES
The purpose of this chapter is to illustrate some ways in which data on the characteristics of Amniotes can be combined with phylogenic information. It also aims to develop analytical methods thatExpand

Microsatellite and Mitochondrial Genetic Comparisons between Northern and Southern Populations of California Grunion (Leuresthes tenuis)
Abstract Although the type specimen of California Grunion (Leuresthes tenuis) was described from a local fish market in 1860, this coastal marine fish was not seen in San Francisco again until 2001,Expand

Dynamics of Soil Denitrifier Populations: Relationships between Enzyme Activity, Most-Probable-Number Counts, and Actual N Gas Loss.
To better understand temporal variability in soil denitrification, denitrifying enzyme activity (DEA) and denitrifier populations (as determined by most-probable-number [MPN] counts) were measured inExpand
