...M. Burrows ABSTRACT High-speed videos were used to analyse whether and how adults of a winged species of scorpion fly (Mecoptera, Panorpa communis ) jump and determine whether they use the same mechanism as that of the only other mecopteran known to jump, the wingless snow flea, Boreus hyemalis...

In snow fleas ( Burrows, 2011 ), praying mantis ( Burrows et al., 2015 ) and the dolichopodid fly Hydrophorus alboflorens ( Burrows, 2013a ), the middle and the hind legs leave the ground at the same time so both are able to contribute thrust during the last part of the acceleration phase...

... and Morris, 2003 ). This is achieved by the enormous leverage produced by their very long hind legs. Second, the fly Hydrophorus alboflorens requires a power output that is higher than could be produced by direct contractions of the small leg muscles, but a catapult mechanism is not implicated. Instead...

...John O. Dabiri SUMMARY The transfer of momentum from an animal to fluid in its wake is fundamental to many swimming and flying modes of locomotion. Hence, properties of the wake are commonly studied in experiments to infer the magnitude and direction of locomotive forces. The determination of which...

Energy consumption during diving may be as high in some birds (e.g. tufted duck) as when they are swimming at maximum sustainable speed, and this is not influenced by water temperature...
