“…Fourth, active stiffening of tissues as speed changes is a key area of interest in aquatic locomotion. For fishes, activation of red musculature along the body causes changes in stiffness and the fluid-structure interaction that may be related to changing locomotor efficiency (Flammang, 2010;Long et al, 2011;Root et al, 2007;Tytell et al, 2010Tytell et al, , 2014, but data suggesting active changes in wing surface stiffness are not available for any batoid. By analyzing wing kinematics over a doubling of swimming speed in the little skate, we aim to determine whether kinematic data show evidence of active wing stiffening by intrinsic musculature.…”

“…Additionally, the control lampreys were able to avoid the build-up of vortices at the tail by actively sweeping the tail in the opposite direction, shedding the trailing vortex before the adjacent vortex approached. Computational studies of lamprey swimming confirm the need for active suppression of passive kinematics for improved propulsion (Root et al, 2007). Since vortices align along the same part of the body bend, active control of bending is necessary to control the wave shape and therefore vortex interactions.…”

“…2C). This is because increased bending requires active actuation (Root et al, 2007), which the transected lampreys could not do beyond mid-body. The amount of bending is important for vorticity generation.…”
