... for migration. Here, we examined the energetic cost and flight speed of the long-distance migratory Nathusius’ bat ( Pipistrellus nathusii ). We measured flight metabolism in relation to airspeed in a wind tunnel, inferred the optimal traveling speed over long distances, i.e. maximum range speed, and compared...

... shown that when bumblebees encounter sudden changes in the proximity to nearby surfaces – as indicated by a change in the magnitude of optic flow on each side of the visual field – they adjust their flight speed well before the change, suggesting that they measure optic flow for speed control at low...

... (9.8 m s –2 )] divided by wing area (m 2 ). To interpret the measured flight air speed, the theoretical U-shaped curve that represents relationship between the mechanical power requirement and flight speed is useful ( Tobalske, 2007 ; Pennycuick, 2008 ). It indicates the two characteristic...

...WOLFRAM ZARNACK; MICHAEL WORTMANN 1. Locusts were fastened to a force transducer in front of a wind tunnel to measure their lift and thrust during tethered flight heading into the wind. The thrust measurement was used to adapt the wind speed to the flight speed of the animals. Thus, the locusts...
