...Tina Haagensen; Joshua L. Gaschk; Johanna T. Schultz; Christofer J. Clemente ABSTRACT Manoeuvrability, the ability to make rapid changes in direction, is central to animal locomotion. Turning performance may depend on the ability to successfully complete key challenges including: withstanding...

...Tyson L. Hedrick Summary Flying animals exhibit remarkable degrees of both stability and manoeuvrability. Our understanding of these capabilities has recently been improved by the identification of a source of passive damping specific to flapping flight. Examining how this damping effect scales...

... of turning rates of the anterior part of the body (head to centre of mass), i.e. with peak values from 434 to 1023 deg. s -1 . We suggest that this variability may be due to the presence of two types of escape manoeuvres, i.e. responses with high and low turning rates, as previously found in a teleost...
