Published: 2 July 2019
...Anthony B. Lapsansky; Bret W. Tobalske ABSTRACT Alcids, a family of seabirds including murres, guillemots and puffins, exhibit the greatest mass-specific dive depths and durations of any birds or mammals. These impressive diving capabilities have motivated numerous studies on the biomechanics...

...Cassondra L. Williams; Katsufumi Sato; Paul J. Ponganis ABSTRACT Marine turtles spend their life at sea and can rest on the seafloor for hours. As air-breathers, the breath-hold capacity of marine turtles is a function of oxygen (O 2 ) stores, O 2 consumption during dives and hypoxia tolerance...

Existing calibration relationships were then used to make behaviour-specific estimates of energy expenditure...

...Cassondra L. Williams; James W. Hicks ABSTRACT Mammals and birds maintain high arterial partial pressure of oxygen ( P O 2 ) values in order to preserve near-complete hemoglobin (Hb) oxygen (O 2 ) saturation. In diving mammals and birds, arterial O 2 follows a primarily monotonic decline...

... to the larynx. Toothed cetaceans (Odontoceti) are capable of producing sounds at depth, either for locating prey or for communication. It has been suggested that during dives, air from the lungs and upper respiratory tract can be moved to the vestibular and nasal cavities to permit sound generation to continue...

... of the blood through the arterial retia. Formation of nitrogen bubbles that may reach the brain is thereby avoided. We also suggest that mass stranding of whales may be due to disturbances to their normal dive profiles, resulting in extra release of nitrogen that may overburden the nitrogen ‘trap’ and allow...

We tested this hypothesis by measuring arterial mechanics experimentally and modelling arterial transmural pressures mathematically. The mechanical properties of mammalian arteries reflect the physiological loads they experience...

...Samuel J. Geiseler; Arnoldus S. Blix; Jennifer M. Burns; Lars P. Folkow SUMMARY Hooded seals ( Cystophora cristata ) rely on large stores of oxygen, either bound to hemoglobin or myoglobin (Mb), to support prolonged diving activity. Pups are born with fully developed hemoglobin stores, but their Mb...
