Wings: Design Constraints Related to Flight Behaviors in Birds

A bird’s wings are essential for transportation and mobility. All species of birds have different wings that can differ in many aspects: wingspan, wing color, wing shape, weight, composition and more. These characteristics define each bird species and come from generations of genetic heredity and adaptation to their changing environment.…

Exploring the Structure and Functionality of Flippers

Among all living organisms, locomotion is extremely important. For large, multicellular organisms, it might be useful to find more suitable climates, or to escape from predators. For all living things, it is necessary to find nutrition, add diversity to the gene pool and limit inbreeding (Safran and Nosil, 2012). Methods…
