- Heterochrony and the development of the escape response: prehatching movements in the rainbow trout Oncorhynchus mykissAlice C Gibb
Department of Biology, Northern Arizona University, Flagstaff, Arizona 86011 5640, USA
J Exp Zool A Ecol Genet Physiol 307:556-67. 2007..This finding supports the evolutionary hypothesis that an effective escape response is critical for the survival of newly hatched teleost fishes...
- Development of the escape response in teleost fishes: do ontogenetic changes enable improved performance?Alice C Gibb
Department of Biological Sciences, Box 5640, Northern Arizona University, Flagstaff, AZ, 86011 5640, USA
Physiol Biochem Zool 79:7-19. 2006..e., those with direct development) should have a greater ability to evade predators than do fish that enter the environment at an early stage of development (i.e., those with indirect development)...
- Cranial movements during suction feeding in teleost fishes: Are they modified to enhance suction production?Alice C Gibb
Department of Biology, Northern Arizona University, Flagstaff, AZ 86011, USA
Zoology (Jena) 108:141-53. 2005..We suggest that suction performance may be greatest in such obligate benthic feeders because cranial morphology is highly modified and prey are captured from the substrate...
- Modeling the jaw mechanism of Pleuronichthys verticalis: The morphological basis of asymmetrical jaw movements in a flatfishAlice Coulter Gibb
Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, University of California, Irvine, California, USA
J Morphol 256:1-12. 2003..In addition, similar morphological modifications have been observed in other fish taxa that also produce jaw flexion during feeding, which suggests that there may be convergence in the basic mechanism of asymmetry...
- Botulinum toxin injections as a method for chemically denervating skeletal muscle to test functional hypotheses: a pilot study in Lepomis cyanellusMatthew W O'Neill
Department of Biological Sciences, Northern Arizona University, Flagstaff, Arizona 86011, USA
Physiol Biochem Zool 80:241-9. 2007..We suggest that botulinum toxin holds great promise as a chemical denervation agent in functional studies of animal locomotion and feeding behaviors...

- Kinematics of aquatic and terrestrial escape responses in mudskippersBrook O Swanson
Department of Biological Sciences, Northern Arizona University, PO Box 5640, Flagstaff, AZ 86011, USA
J Exp Biol 207:4037-44. 2004..Thus, it appears that the same locomotor morphology is recruited differently by the central nervous system to produce a distinct behavior appropriate for each environment...
- Morphology of a picky eater: a novel mechanism underlies premaxillary protrusion and retraction within cyprinodontiformsL Patricia Hernandez
Department of Biological Sciences, The George Washington University, 2023 G Street NW, Washington, DC 20052, USA
Zoology (Jena) 111:442-54. 2008..This mechanism is further refined in some poeciliids, where direct muscular control of the premaxillae may facilitate picking and/or scraping material from the substrate...
- Trophic apparatus in cyprinodontiform fishes: functional specializations for picking and scraping behaviorsL Patricia Hernandez
Department of Biological Sciences, The George Washington University, Washington, District of Columbia 20052, USA
J Morphol 270:645-61. 2009..We propose that the suite of morphological characters described here enable a functional innovation, "picking," which leads to novel trophic habits...
