... frequency and cruising speed for individual whales spanning a threefold variation in body length, corresponding to an order of magnitude variation in estimated body mass. Our results showed that oscillatory frequency decreases with body length (∝length −0.53 ) while cruising speed remains roughly invariant...

... the average amount of disorder in each frequency bin within the sound sample ( Charif et al., 2010 ). Calculations were restricted to sound selections of equal duration (time) and bandwidth (frequency) across all recordings (Hann window size=1300 samples; 2048-sample FFT frequency grid) and were targeted...

...Eric Parmentier; Orphal Colleye; David Mann SUMMARY Clownfish live in social groups in which there is a size-based dominance hierarchy. In such a context, sonic cues could play a role in social organisation because dominant frequency and pulse length of sounds are strongly correlated with fish size...

... potential (AP)pulses at frequencies that correspond to trout heart rates in vivo at 7°C, 14°C and 21°C. Additionally, [Ca 2+ ] i and I Ca were examined with square (SQ) pulses at slow (0.2 Hz) and physiologically relevant contraction frequencies. The amplitude of[Ca 2+ ] i decreased with increasing...

...R. D. Bullen; N. L. McKenzie SUMMARY Wingbeat frequency ( f w ) and amplitude(θ w ) were measured for 23 species of Australian bat,representing two sub-orders and six families. Maximum values were between 4 and 13 Hz for f w , and between 90 and 150° forθ w , depending on the species. Wingbeat...

.... Differences in myocardial Ca 2+ handling between fish and mammals suggest a greater energy cost of activation in fish. Further, while there is considerable evidence that heart rate (or cycle frequency) should have a profound effect on the efficiency of teleost cardiac muscle, this effect has been largely...

...W. J. BAILEY; H. C. BENNET-CLARK; N. H. FLETCHER SUMMARY For most insects, size determines the call frequency. This paper describes the acoustics of a small brachypterous cricket ( Rufocephalus sp.;body length 9.6 mm) producing a call with a carrier frequency of approximately 3.2 kHz from...

... electromyograms. Single, simultaneous twitches of the bilateral sonic muscles produce a single sound pulse consisting of a two-to three-cycle acoustic waveform. Typical disturbance calls at 18 °C consist of trains of 2–15 pulses with a sound pressure level (SPL) of 74 dB re 20 μPa at 10 cm, a peak frequency...

... in the male bat. Wingbeat frequency increased with total mass or wing loading, varying as M 0.61 in the female and M 0.44 in the male bat. Hence frequency, but not speed, changed with mass in the direction predicted by aerodynamic theory. These results were used in a mathematical model to predict wingbeat...

A combination of multiple regression and dimensional analysis was used to show that wingbeat frequency ( f...
