J Morphol 242:107-24. 1999..Inertial effects from body, head, and jaw movements, along with clear differences that we found in passive resistance of the tongues to elongation, may explain much of the behavioral variation in tongue use among species...
- Sexual dimorphism in forelimb muscles of the bullfrog, Rana catesbeiana: a functional analysis of isometric contractile propertiesS E Peters
Department of Biology, The University of North Carolina at Charlotte, NC 28223, USA
J Exp Biol 203:3639-54. 2000..This sustained force is much less pronounced in the female muscles, suggesting that high levels of sustained force may be a key functional feature that enables males to maintain amplexus economically for prolonged periods...
