...C. M. Pace; A. C. Gibb SUMMARY Mudskippers use pectoral fins for their primary mode of locomotion on land and pectoral fins in conjunction with the axial musculature and caudal fin to move in water. We hypothesized that distinct pectoral fin movements enable effective locomotion in each environment...

.... Reproduction on mudflats requires protection of developing eggs from thermal and salinity extremes,O 2 shortage, dislodgement by currents, siltation and predation. Mudskippers are air-breathing, amphibious fishes, and one of few vertebrates that reside on mudflats. They lay their eggs in mud burrows containing...

...Brook O. Swanson; Alice C. Gibb SUMMARY Escape responses in fishes are rapid behaviors that are critical for survival. The barred mudskipper ( Periophthalmus argentilineatus ) is an amphibious fish that must avoid predators in two environments. We compared mudskipper terrestrial and aquatic escapes...
