... it through baleen plates. However, as engulfment capacity increases with body length (engulfment volume∝body length 3.57 ), the surface area of the baleen filter does not increase proportionally (baleen area∝body length 1.82 ), and thus the filtration time of larger rorquals predictably increases...

...{document} where C =cell concentration ml –1 sample, A =the mean of all field counts, B =25,822, which is the number of fields on a filter, excluding the filter margins which were ineffective in filtration, and V =volume (ml) of water filtered. Cell sizes in eight inflow/outflow pairs were...

... filtration theory, commonly applied to idealized collector arrays composed of perfectly rigid cylinders ( Rubenstein and Koehl,1977 ; LaBarbera,1984 ; Shimeta and Jumars,1991 ). A key index emerging from this conceptualization is`leakiness', a measure of filter efficacy quantified as the proportion...

...Alexander J. Werth SUMMARY Anatomical and behavioral analyses suggest that the filtration mechanism of bowhead and right whales (Balaenidae) is driven by hydrodynamic as well as ram hydraulic pressures. Complementary models were devised to investigate biomechanical aspects of water flow...
