...Jason P. Odell; Mark A. Chappell; Kathryn A. Dickson SUMMARY We examined the mechanistic basis for two whole-animal performance traits,aerobic capacity and burst speed, in six laboratory-reared Trinidadian guppy populations from different native drainages with contrasting levels of predation. Using...

...Stephen M. Secor; Bruce C. Jayne; Albert F. Bennett ABSTRACT We measured the performance (burst speed and endurance) and the energetic cost of sidewinding locomotion for the viperid snake Crotalus cerastes . The linear scaling regressions relating log mass to log burst speed and log endurance have...
