... and stopping vortices are consistent with predictions of computational fluid dynamic models of the rowing oblate medusa Aequorea victoria ( Sahin et al., 2009 ). In C. mosaicus it is apparent that the flexible bell margin plays a role in the modulation of the fluid movements that results in thrust, via...

.... The feeding ecology of goldfish and bluegill differs considerably and this may be partially due to differences in fluid dynamics and kinematics. Bluegill are the most planktivorous of all centrarchid species ( Collar et al., 2009 ), feeding on both midwater cladocerans and benthic insects. In contrast...

We first used digital particle image velocimetry to quantify the fluid dynamics of flow over a variety of substrates. We then visualized the patterns...
