The role of mechanics in elongate fish swimming behavior: Comparative studies of the vertebrae, skin, and body in sixteen species of fishes

Donatelli, Cassandra.


  • Fish are the largest and most diverse group of vertebrates, with a wide array of body shapes and behaviors. Certain body shapes and behaviors have long been hypothesized to confer high performance, but these hypotheses have rarely been tested. In principle, the diversity of fishes would make multi-species studies of characters easy, but, since characters tend to co-vary, it is difficult to ... read more
