Water bathing alters the speed-accuracy trade-off of escape flights in European starlings
Birds of most species regularly bathe in water, but the function of this behaviour is unknown. We tested the hypothesis that water bathing is important in feather maintenance, and hence should enhance flight performance. ...
Long-term evolution of strongly nonlinear internal solitary waves in a rotating channel
The evolution of internal solitary waves (ISWs) propagating in a rotating channel is studied numerically in the framework of a fully-nonlinear, nonhydrostatic numerical model. The aim of modelling efforts was the investigation ...

Boldness and behavioral syndromes in the bluegill sunfish, Lepomis macrochirus
In recent years, evidence for interindividual variation in "personality" within animal populations has been accumulating. Personality is defined as consistency in an individual's behavioral responses over time and/or across ...
Generation of internal waves by a supercritical stratified plume
The generation of internal waves by a propagating river plume is studied in the framework of a fully nonlinear nonhydrostatic numerical model. The vertical fluid stratification, parameters of tide, river discharge, and the ...
Three-dimensional evolution of large-amplitude internal waves in the Strait of Gibraltar
The modeling of large-amplitude internal waves (LAIWs) propagating in the Strait of Gibraltar is carried out using a fully nonlinear nonhydrostatic numerical model. The focus of the modeling efforts was on three-dimensional ...
