Median fin function during the escape response of bluegill sunfish (Lepomis macrochirus). II: Fin-ray curvature.

Abstract

Although kinematic analysis of individual fin rays provides valuable insight into the contribution of median fins to C-start performance, it paints an incomplete picture of the complex movements and deformation of the flexible fin surface. To expand our analysis of median fin function during the escape response of bluegill sunfish (Lepomis macrochirus… (More)
