The influence of thermal acclimation on power production during swimming. I. In vivo stimulation and length change pattern of scup red muscle.

Ectothermal animals are able to locomote in a kinematically similar manner over a wide range of temperatures. It has long been recognized that there can be a significant reduction in the power output of muscle during swimming at low temperatures because of the reduced steady-state (i.e. constant activation and shortening velocity) power-generating… (More)
