    Daniel Weihs
    Faculty of Aerospace Engineering, Technion, Israel Institute of Technology, Haifa 32000, Israel
    J Biol 3:8. 2004
    ..A study of the hydrodynamics of drafting, initiated in the hope of understanding the mechanisms causing the separation of mothers and calves during fishing-related activities, is reported here...

    Gal Ribak
    Faculty of Biology, Technion Israel Institute of Technology, Haifa 32000, Israel
    J Exp Biol 207:2101-14. 2004
    ..The added cost of the drag resulting from this tilting behavior may be reduced by the fact that the birds use a burst-and-glide pattern while swimming...

    Department of Biology, Technion Israel Institute of Technology, Haifa 32000, Israel
    J Exp Biol 208:3835-49. 2005
    ..5 m s(-1)), but that as the birds dive deeper (>1 m where buoyancy is reduced), the burst-and-glide gait may become beneficial even at lower speeds...

    Gal Ribak
    Department of Biology, Technion, Haifa 32000, Israel
    J Exp Biol 211:3009-19. 2008
    ..The neck produced only a small portion (10%) of the normal vertical forces but its length may allow prey capture at the end of pursuit, within the minimum turning radius...

    Ian K Bartol
    Department of Organismic Biology, Ecology, and Evolution, University of California, Los Angeles, CA 91606, USA
    J Exp Biol 206:725-44. 2003
    ..All important morphological features of the carapace contribute to producing the hydrodynamic stability of swimming trajectories in this species...

    Ian K Bartol
    Department of Biological Sciences, Old Dominion University, Norfolk, VA 23529 0266, USA
    J Exp Biol 208:327-44. 2005
    ..These data together with previous work on smooth trunkfish indicate that body-induced vortical flows are a common mechanism that is probably significant for trim control in all species of tropical boxfishes...

    Frank E Fish
    Department of Biology, West Chester University, West Chester, PA 19383, USA
    J Exp Biol 209:590-8. 2006
    ..The model indicates that the high rotation rates and orientation of the dolphin's body during re-entry into the water could produce enough force to hydrodynamically dislodge unwanted remoras...
