...Guanqun Kou; Yang Wang; Robert Dudley; Yuefeng Wu; Dongming Li ABSTRACT Captivity presumably challenges the physiological equilibrium of birds and thus influences flight ability. However, the extent to which captive birds exhibit altered features underpinning maximum flight performance remains...

...C. P. Ellington ABSTRACT Flight performance seems to change systematically with body size: small animals can hover and fly over a wide range of speeds, but large birds taxi for takeoff and then fly over a narrow speed range. The traditional explanation for this is that the mass-specific power...
