- Escaping away from and towards a threat: the cockroach's strategy for staying alivePaolo Domenici
CNR IAMC Localitá Sa Mardini, Torregrande Or, Italy
Commun Integr Biol 2:497-500. 2009..This suggests that cockroaches minimize their turn when making a towards response, which could represent an effective anti-predator behavior that allows cockroaches to reach one of the preferred ETs within a relatively short time...
- Predator-induced morphology enhances escape locomotion in crucian carpPaolo Domenici
CNR IAMC, Localita Sa Mardini, 09072 Torregrande, Oristano, Italy
Proc Biol Sci 275:195-201. 2008..The deep-bodied carp also show higher percentage of muscle mass. Therefore, their superior performance in escape swimming may be due to a combination of higher muscle power and higher thrust...

International Marine Centre, Localita Sa Mardini, 09072 Torregrande Or, Italy
Physiol Biochem Zool 78:744-55. 2005..These adaptive modulations of ASR behavior would allow mullet to retain advantages of the chemoreflex when threatened by avian predators or when unable to perceive potential threats in turbidity...
