... achieved flight muscle temperatures that were near or on equal, opposite sides of the thermal performance curve. Honey bees vary their wing kinematics and metabolic heat production to thermoregulate, and how air temperature affects the flight metabolic rate of honey bees is predictable using a non-linear...

... to evaluate the maximum power output, wing kinematics and flight postures, and has been employed in a variety of avian species ( Altshuler et al., 2004 ; Sun et al., 2016 ; Wang et al., 2020 ; Kou et al., 2022 ). It enables us to explore the effects of mass loss induced by dietary restriction on underlying...

...Natsuki Harada; Takuma Oura; Masateru Maeda; Yayi Shen; Dale M. Kikuchi; Hiroto Tanaka ABSTRACT Penguins are adapted to underwater life and have excellent swimming abilities. Although previous motion analyses revealed their basic swimming characteristics, the details of the 3D wing kinematics, wing...

... horizontal). In the present paper, wing and body kinematics of four freely hovering true hoverflies were measured using three-dimensional high-speed video. The measured wing kinematics was used in a Navier–Stokes solver to compute the aerodynamic forces of the insects. The stroke amplitude of the hoverflies...
