Fish functional design and swimming performance
TLDR
Biomimetic approaches to the development of Autonomous Underwater Vehicles have given a ness context and impetus to research and this is discussed in relation to current views of fish functional design and sustaining performance. Expand
Acidithiobacillus ferrooxidans metabolism: from genome sequence to industrial applications
TLDR
Bioinformatics analysis provides a valuable platform for gene discovery and functional prediction that helps explain the activity of A. ferrooxidans in industrial bioleaching and its role as a primary producer in acidic environments. Expand
The Kinematics and Performance of the Escape Response in the Angelfish (Pterophyllum Eimekei)
TLDR
The kinematics of turning manoeuvres and the distance-time performance in escape responses of startled angelfish are investigated employing high-speed cinematography and higher distance- time performances associated with smaller angles of turn are found in DB than in SB responses. Expand
ESCAPE TRAJECTORIES IN ANGELFISH (PTEROPHYLLUM EIMEKEI)
TLDR
It is suggested that the presence of multiple preferred trajectories may be adaptive in preventing predators from learning any single fixed pattern of response and compensating for it. Expand
Prey capture and the fast-start performance of northern pike Esox lucius
Fast-start performance of northern pike Esox lucius (mean length, 0.38m) during prey capture was measured with subcutaneously implanted accelerometers. Acceleration-time plots and simultaneousExpand
MECHANICS OF UNDERWATER LOCOMOTION IN DIVING DUCKS: DRAG, BUOYANCY AND ACCELERATION IN A SIZE GRADIENT OF SPECffiS
1.The effects of accelerational swimming and body size on mechanical energy costs of diving were examined by comparing canvasback ( Aythya valisineria Wilson), redhead ( A. americana Eyton) andExpand
Turning radius of yellowfin tuna (Thunnus albacares) in unsteady swimming manoeuvres
TLDR
It is argued that specializations for efficient steady swimming compromise performance in transient turning manoeuvres in yellowfin tuna. Expand
Effect of herd environment on the genetic and phenotypic relationships among milk yield, conception rate, and somatic cell score in Holstein cattle.
TLDR
A long-range plan for low environment herds should focus on improving the level of management, which would greatly reduce the unfavorable correlated changes in lactation mean somatic cell score and conception rate at first service associated with the genetic improvement of mature equivalent milk yield. Expand
Interaction between milk yield of Holstein cows in Mexico and the United States.
TLDR
Both reductions in the size of genetic variance in Mexican environments relative to the US and genetic correlation coefficients less than unity were indicative of genotype by environment interaction. Expand
Fast-Start Performance of Rainbow Trout Salmo Gairdneri and Northern Pike Esox Lucius
TLDR
Intraspecific and interspecific comparisons of distance, time, mean andmaximum velocity, and mean and maximum acceleration rate indicate that fast-start performance is significantly higher for pike than for trout, for all performance parameters, which indicates that performance is related to body form.
