...Marc A. Badger; Kathryn McClain; Ashley Smiley; Jessica Ye; Robert Dudley ABSTRACT Many birds routinely fly fast through dense vegetation characterized by variably sized structures and voids. Successfully negotiating these cluttered environments requires maneuvering through narrow constrictions...

... activation and length change differed among flight modes, yet demonstrated that pigeons do not change the basic mechanical actions of key flight muscles as they shift from flight activities that demand energy production, such as takeoff and midflight, to maneuvers that require absorption of energy...

... and Taylor, 2001 ). The ability to maneuver ( Warrick et al., 2002 ) and the converse, controlling position to be stable in the air ( Thomas and Taylor,2001 ; Taylor and Thomas,2002 ; Taylor and Thomas,2003 ), are of great importance to flying animals. Highly maneuverable animals may respond more...

... the spin, the morphology of the dolphin precludes this mechanism for the spinning maneuver. A mathematical model was developed that demonstrates that angular momentum to induce the spin was generated underwater, prior to the leap. Subsurface corkscrewing motion represents a balance between drive torques...
