... to function as control surfaces that effect maneuvers, but quantitative tests of this hypothesis have been lacking. Here, we constructed a simple hydrodynamic model to predict the longitudinal-axis roll performance of fin whales, and we tested its predictions against kinematic data recorded by on-board...

...M. A. Lillie; M. A. Piscitelli; A. W. Vogl; J. M. Gosline; R. E. Shadwick SUMMARY Fin whales have an incompliant aorta, which, we hypothesize, represents an adaptation to large, depth-induced variations in arterial transmural pressures. We hypothesize these variations arise from a limited ability...

...A. Acevedo-Gutiérrez; D. A. Croll; B. R. Tershy SUMMARY Large body size usually extends dive duration in air-breathing vertebrates. However, the two largest predators on earth, the blue whale ( Balaenoptera musculus ) and the fin whale ( B. physalus ), perform short dives for their size. Here, we...
