|The effects of hypobaric hypoxia on aspects of oxygen transport and utilization in mice with an inherited tolerance for hypoxic exercise
||The effects of chronic hypoxia on properties of oxygen supply and demand were
investigated in mice found to have inherited differences in hypoxic exercise tolerance
(43). Previous results demonstrated that two major loci and an unknown number of
|Metabolic influences of fiber size in aerobic and anaerobic muscles of the blue crab, Callinectes sapidus
||Diameters of some white muscle fibers in the adult blue crab, Callinectes sapidus, exceed 500 µm whereas juvenile white fibers are <100 µm. It is hypothesized that aerobically dependent processes, such as recovery from exercise, will be significantly...
|Defensive synergy : the antipredatory role of glass spicules in Caribbean demosponges
||Many sponge species produce secondary metabolites that deter predation. Sponges also
contain siliceous spicules, but previous studies have provided little evidence that spicules offer
any defense against generalist fish predators. However, feeding ...
|Scaling of post-contractile phosphocreatine recovery in white muscle of black sea bass, Centropristis striata
||During somatic growth, increases in fish muscle mass occur both by hyperplasia and hypertrophy, and in some species the hypertrophic phase of growth leads to very large fiber diameters. Large fiber size leads is associated with low fiber surface area...
|Influence of habitat complexity in structuring species-specific interactions and trophic linkages on oyster reefs of southeastern North Carolina
||Species interactions influencing the strength of trophic linkages play a key role in
structuring communities. Although the importance of these interactions has been
recognized, currently there are relatively few studies characterizing the role of h...
