Published: 5 November 2021
...Jacob R. Winnikoff; Steven H. D. Haddock; Itay Budin ABSTRACT Animals are known to regulate the composition of their cell membranes to maintain key biophysical properties in response to changes in temperature. For deep-sea marine organisms, high hydrostatic pressure represents an additional, yet...

... transmission; and (3) systematically changed the inter-muscular pressure by performing experiments at different activation/force levels, thereby exploring the possible role of inter-muscular pressure in the loss of torque capacity with simultaneous muscle activation. Experiments were performed in a New Zealand...

... predators on other constrictors remain unknown. To begin addressing these mechanisms, we studied the scaling of muscle cross-sectional area, pulling force and constriction pressure across the ontogeny of six species of snakes ( Lampropeltis californiae , L. getula , L. holbrooki , Pantherophis...

...Christopher P. Kenaley; George V. Lauder ABSTRACT The vast majority of ray-finned fishes capture prey through suction feeding. The basis of this behavior is the generation of subambient pressure through rapid expansion of a highly kinetic skull. Over the last four decades, results from in vivo...

... behavior in four species of pipids, Pipa pipa, Xenopus laevis, Hymenochirus boettgeri and Pseudhymenochirus merlini . Pressure in the buccopharyngeal cavity was measured during prey capture. These pressure measurements were coupled with high-speed recordings of feeding behavior. For each species...

...J. C. Partridge; E. M. White; R. H. Douglas SUMMARY The effect of hydrostatic pressure (0.1-54 MPa, equivalent to pressures experienced by fish from the ocean's surface to depths of ca. 5400 m) on visual pigment absorption spectra was investigated for rod visual pigments extracted from the retinae...

...D. M. Webber; R. G. Boutilier; S. R. Kerr; M. J. Smale SUMMARY We report the results of an experiment designed to investigate the feasibility of using differential pressure to estimate the swimming speed and metabolic rate of Atlantic cod ( Gadus morhua ). Seven cod were fitted with a miniature...

... does not play an important role. The detectable lift forces can be compared with those of technical wing profiles for low Re numbers. Pressure measurements (at Re =9300) show that, because of rotating vortices along the chord length, not only is the effective profile form changed, but the pressure...

Venous values during and after submersions as deep as 11.2 ATA (102 m) were all less than 2.8 atmospheres N 2 (283 kPa) above ambient pressure, a previously measured threshold for symptomatic bubble...

Pressure recordings in the mantle cavity support this finding, indicating a high basal level of spontaneous activity at rest and a small rise in mean pressure at higher swimming velocity. Bursts of higher pressures from the jet support elevated swimming speeds and may...
