...Juliana Senawi; Tigga Kingston ABSTRACT Differences in wing morphology are predicted to reflect differences in bat foraging strategies. Experimental tests of this prediction typically assess the relationship between wing morphology and a measures of flight performance on an obstacle course. However...

... that contrasted selective regimes may act on different wing parts of Morpho butterflies, highlighting wing areas under stabilizing and relaxed selection. Ascertaining the variation in aerodynamic constraints within and between insect wings may thus provide important insight on the evolution of wing morphology...

... thoroughly studied in the context of vertebrate flight. Further challenges to understanding bat and bird flight are posed by the complex, dynamic wing morphologies of these species and the more turbulent airflow generated by their wings compared with that observed during insect flight. Nevertheless, three...
