The decision to measure V[O.sub.2] with 20% and 40% BWS reflected previous work by this lab (McNeill et al.
For one participant, improper positioning of the mouthpiece during the test at 40% BWS yielded inaccurate measurements for the first three velocities (3.35, 3.84, and 4.47 m x [s.sup.-1]) before being fixed, so these measurements were not included in the analysis.
The gait cycle took longer to complete with greater BWS, increasing by 25.8 percent at the highest level of BWS (Figure 5).
To our knowledge, this is the first study to look at muscle activation patterns during gait with increasing levels of BWS using the ZeroG training system.
The termination of pig BW data at specific target BWs produces biased estimates of WF and predicted ADGs at heavier BWs (Schinckel and de Lange, 1996; Craig and Schinckel, 2001; Schinckel et al., 2009a).
At heavier BWs, as the fastest gaining pigs reached their target BWs, the ADG of the remaining pigs likely increased in comparison to if no pigs were removed (DeDecker et al., 2005).
On the other hand, spring-emerging early reproductive BWs will migrate in absence of reproductive hosts, and feed on feeding hosts until a reproductive host becomes available.
(1975) recaptured marked BWs at distances ranging from 2 to 66 km from the release point and Guerra (1988) reported that several marked BWs were recovered at a flight distance of approximately 320 km.
