... in Trachemys scripta while underwater. Additionally, as the respiratory system of T. scripta possesses a well-developed post-pulmonary septum (PPS), we investigated its role by analyzing the breathing mechanics of lungs with and without their PPS attached. Static compliance was significantly increased...

Takeoff velocity was robust to changes in compliance, but was lower than when jumping from flat surfaces. This highlights...

The aim of this research was to investigate the anatomical (gross) and structural (compliance) characteristics of excised marine mammal tracheas. Here, we defined different types of tracheal structures...

The visco-elastic nature of tendons allows stretch and recoil during locomotion, increasing locomotor efficiency, yet this elasticity or compliance also affects positional control. An interesting parameter hereof is the ratio of external...

Moreover, the swimbladder volume at a given depth also depends on the compliance of the swimbladder wall, but this latter factor has been investigated in only a limited number of species. In this study, changes in the volume of the zebrafish swimbladder were observed both in vitro and in situ...
