Body Form, Locomotion and Foraging in Aquatic Vertebrates
Four functional categories are denned to embrace the range of locomotor diversity of aquatic vertebrates; (1) body/caudal fin (BCF) periodic propulsion where locomotor movements repeat, as occurs inExpand

Locomotor Patterns in the Evolution of Actinopterygian Fishes
SYNOPSIS. Locomotor adaptations in actinopterygian fishes are described for (a) caudal propulsion, used in cruising and sprint swimming, acceleration, and fast turns and (b) median and paired finExpand
