...Katherine A. Corn; Stacy C. Farina; Adam P. Summers; Alice C. Gibb ABSTRACT Flatfishes use cyclic body undulations to force water into the sediment and fluidize substrate particles, displacing them into the water column. When water velocity decreases, suspended particles settle back onto the fish...

...Zélia Velez; Peter C. Hubbard; Eduardo N. Barata; Adelino V. M. Canário SUMMARY The Senegalese sole is a marine flatfish, which often penetrates into estuarine waters to feed. It cannot, however, survive in full freshwater. The current study investigated the effect of adaptation to low salinity...

...Paula C. Mendonça; A. Kurt Gamperl SUMMARY Previous studies have suggested that flatfish lack adrenergic cardiac innervation and have a limited humoral adrenergic stress response. However,data on neurohormonal control of flatfish cardiac function is scarce, and has never been directly studied...

...Emma J. Kelman; Palap Tiptus; Daniel Osorio SUMMARY Plaice ( Pleuronectes platessa ) is a flatfish well-known for the ability to vary its body pattern, probably for camouflage. This study investigates the repertoire of patterns used by juvenile plaice, by describing how they respond to shifts...
