1. High-speed cinematography of the escape behaviour of freelymoving crayfish showed that the thoracic and abdominal appendages exhibit stereotyped movements in giant axon-mediated tail flips and in non-giant flips. Three distinct classes of non-giant tail flips were recognized in this study: linear, pitching and twisting flips. 2. In medial giant flips and linear non-giant flips the chelipeds and pereiopods were promoted and extended in a manner which minimized the hydrodynamic resistance of… CONTINUE READING
