Applicability of hydrodynamic analyses of spermatozoan motion.


This paper investigates the applicability of a simple hydrodynamics theory due to Gray & Hancock (1955), and extended by Brokaw (1970), to the analysis of the motions of sea urchin, rabbit, and bull spermatozoa. Experimental procedures for filming and analysing the swimming motions are presented. A detailed discussion of the agreement between the… (More)
