...Hans Pohl; Elena V. Gorb; Stanislav N. Gorb ABSTRACT The aim of this study was to find out how strongly the parasitic insect Stylops ovinae , which has tarsi equipped with tenent hairs and lacking claws, attaches to different substrates. We investigated adhesion of male S. ovinae to the abdomen...

In this study, we investigate the influence of fouling and surface roughness on the adhesive strength of northern clingfish, Gobiesox maeandricus . We measured clingfish tenacity on unfouled and fouled substrates over four surface roughnesses. We exposed surfaces...
