... no evidence for a `constant-lift reaction', previously supposed to keep lift production constant over a range of body angles, and show that such a reaction would be inconsequential because locusts can potentially correct for pitch disturbances within a single wingbeat. The static stability derivatives...

... speed, depth, two-dimensional accelerations (stroke frequency and body angle) and temperature. All seals conducted multiple deep dives (the mean dive depth range for each animal was 223.3±66.5–297.9±164.7 m). Prolonged gliding while descending was observed with thinner females ( N =5 seals...

... could choose their flight speed freely in the range 0.5–7ms −1 . 2. At light intensities of about 0.02 lx (twilight), the locusts generally produced a maximum lift greater than 100% of their body weight. 3. A miniature motor mounted on the force transducer could alter the body angle of the locusts...
