Ready and Waiting: Delayed Hatching and Extended Incubation of Anamniotic Vertebrate Terrestrial Eggs
  • K. Martin
  • Environmental Science, Biology
  • 1 April 1999
TLDR
The embryonic period is characterized, this mode is compared with other forms of developmental plasticity in anamniotes, and the constraints and advantages of this life history mode are evaluated.
Beach-Spawning Fishes: Reproduction in an Endangered Ecosystem

A Leap of Faith: Evolution of Beach Spawning Behavior Overview of Biogeography and Ecology of Beach-Spawning Fishes Fish Families with Many Intertidal Species Also Have Many Species that Spawn on
Beach‐Spawning Fishes, Terrestrial Eggs, and Air Breathing*
TLDR
This work considers beach spawning a form of parental care in fishes, where the adults place eggs so they will be emerged into air during part or all of incubation, providing increased temperatures, oxygen availability, and protection.
An Ecological Gradient in Air-Breathing Ability among Marine Cottid Fishes

    Physiological Zoology
  • 1 September 1996
TLDR
This study presents data on five species of cottids representing an ecological gradient from high in the intertidal zone to deep-water habitats in Puget Sound, in the Pacific northwestern United States, and indicates that intert tidal species have specific behavioral and physiological attributes permitting survival out of water and that similar species from deeper water lack such attributes.
Time and tide wait for no fish: intertidal fishes out of water
  • K. Martin
  • Environmental Science
  • 1 October 1995
TLDR
This paper suggests ecomorphological and ecophysiological approaches to clarifying the adaptations of intertidal fishes for emergence from water, and considers differences in the types of emergence behavior and activities seen in three broadly defined behavioral types.
Taking the plunge: California Grunion embryos emerge rapidly with environmentally cued hatching.
TLDR
Comparison of hatching across teleostean taxa indicates great variability in stage at hatching and in duration of incubation that suggest hatching plasticity in response to environmental cues may be more widespread than currently appreciated.
Temperature Effects on Egg Survival and Hatching during the Extended Incubation Period of California Grunion, Leuresthes tenuis
TLDR
A broad temperature tolerance, plasticity in incubation duration, and environmentally triggered hatching allow the grunion fish to spawn terrestrially over a long season in a variable coastal ecosystem.
AERIAL RESPIRATION IN THE SALT MARSH FISH FUNDULUS HETEROCLITUS (FUNDULIDAE)
TLDR
It is concluded that E heteroclitus can withstand air emergence in the salt marsh by breathing air and phylogenetic evidence suggests that these traits may also be ancestral characters.
