Advances in Physiology Education
Ellerby DJ. The physiology and mechanics of undulatory swimming: a student laboratory exercise using medicinal leeches. The medicinal leech is a useful animal model for investigating undulatory swimming in the classroom. Unlike many swimming organisms, its swimming performance can be quantified without specialized equipment. A large blood meal alters swimming behavior in a way that can be used to generate a discussion of the hydrodynamics of swimming, muscle mechanics, hydrostatic skeletons,doi:10.1152/advan.00033.2009 pmid:19745048 fatcat:utaumnp53veyjlgh6xtatywr3q
