Published: 28 June 2021
... in Trachemys scripta while underwater. Additionally, as the respiratory system of T. scripta possesses a well-developed post-pulmonary septum (PPS), we investigated its role by analyzing the breathing mechanics of lungs with and without their PPS attached. Static compliance was significantly increased...

... as if their triceps surae muscles would cramp, so it is possible that this played a role. Furthermore, because of increased tendon compliance and increase fascicle shortening at this plantar flexed angle ( Hug et al., 2013 ), the relationship between the position of the surface EMG electrodes and muscle could have...

... that highland species had more compliant respiratory systems below FRC. Despite this, dynamic compliance and resistance were not consistently different, and therefore the work and efficacy of ventilation were similar between highland and lowland taxa. This could reflect exaptation (preadaptation...

Takeoff velocity was robust to changes in compliance, but was lower than when jumping from flat surfaces. This highlights...

Moreover, the swimbladder volume at a given depth also depends on the compliance of the swimbladder wall, but this latter factor has been investigated in only a limited number of species. In this study, changes in the volume of the zebrafish swimbladder were observed both in vitro and in situ...
