J Exp Biol (2009) 212 (14): 2279–2286.
Published: 15 July 2009
...C. M. Pace; A. C. Gibb SUMMARY Mudskippers use pectoral fins for their primary mode of locomotion on land and pectoral fins in conjunction with the axial musculature and caudal fin to move in water. We hypothesized that distinct pectoral fin movements enable effective locomotion in each environment...

.... Reproduction on mudflats requires protection of developing eggs from thermal and salinity extremes,O 2 shortage, dislodgement by currents, siltation and predation. Mudskippers are air-breathing, amphibious fishes, and one of few vertebrates that reside on mudflats. They lay their eggs in mud burrows containing...

...Yuen K. Ip; Mavis W. F. Leong; Mei Y. Sim; Gillian S. Goh; Wai P. Wong; Shit F. Chew SUMMARY The objective of this study was to elucidate if chronic and acute ammonia intoxication in mudskippers, Periophthalmodon schlosseri and Boleophthalmus boddaerti , were associated with high levels of ammonia...

...Heather J. Lee; Callie A. Martinez; Katherine J. Hertzberg; Amy L. Hamilton; Jeffrey B. Graham SUMMARY A laboratory burrow and mudflat system was used to examine aspects of burrow air-phase maintenance and utilization by the amphibious mudskipper Scartelaos histophorus. While confined to its burrow...

...Brook O. Swanson; Alice C. Gibb SUMMARY Escape responses in fishes are rapid behaviors that are critical for survival. The barred mudskipper ( Periophthalmus argentilineatus ) is an amphibious fish that must avoid predators in two environments. We compared mudskipper terrestrial and aquatic escapes...

...Yuen K. Ip; Chiat K. Lim; Serene L. M. Lee; Wai P. Wong; Shit F. Chew SUMMARY The objective of this study was to determine the effects of feeding on the excretory nitrogen (N) metabolism of the giant mudskipper, Periophthalmodon schlosseri , with special emphasis on the role of urea synthesis...

.... schlosseri on the mudflat and from the adjacent canal ( N =6) at Pasir Ris, Singapore, during the non-breeding season between July and September 2001. The identity of the burrow was judged by the characteristic fin marks left around the opening of the burrow as a result of the mudskipper's locomotory...
