  1. 1. Birds in the Flow: Flight Mechanics, Wake Dynamics and Flight Performance

    Detta är en avhandling från Mikael Rosén, Ecology Building, SE-223 62 Lund, Sweden

    Författare :Mikael Rosén; [2003]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Djurekologi; Animal ecology; Eleonora s falcon.; hunting; optimum wingspan; tail posture; wingbeat kinematics; wake topology; DPIV; flight performance; wake dynamics; flight mechanics; wind tunnel; Flight; bird;

    Sammanfattning : I share my fascination of bird flight with many others, and here I summarise my thesis on the subject. This thesis emphasises the mechanics of bird flight by focusing on flight mechanics, wake dynamics and flight performance. LÄS MER

  2. 2. In the wake of a bird - Quantifying aerodynamic performance of avian flight

    Detta är en avhandling från Department of Biology, Lund University

    Författare :Marco Klein Heerenbrink; [2015]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; animal flight; flight performance; gliding; powered flight; wing morphology; aerodynamics; biomechanics; birds; jackdaw; Corvus monedula; wind tunnel; PIV;

    Sammanfattning : Flight is an expensive form of locomotion, but also offers the ability to travel great distances at relatively low cost. Birds have developed various adaptations for optimizing flight performance. The main aim of this thesis is to identify how morphological variables in birds affect aerodynamic drag and flight performance. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Always on the wing - Fluid dynamics, flight performance and flight behavior of common swifts

    Detta är en avhandling från Department of Biology, Lund University

    Författare :Per Henningsson; [2010]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Apus apus; aerodynamics; animal flight; kinematics; vortex wake; digital particle image velocimetry; DPIV; common swift; tracking radar; wind tunnel; migration; roosting flight;

    Sammanfattning : The aerodynamics and kinematics behind the flight of animals are relatively unknown. Although animal flight has been studied for several hundreds of years, it is only in recent time that we have the technical abilities to study the mechanistic basis of animal flight. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Aerodynamic performance in bat flight

    Detta är en avhandling från Lund University, Faculty of Science, Department of Biology

    Författare :Jonas Håkansson; [2017-05]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Leptonycteris yerbabuenae; Plecotus auritus; Glossophaga soricina; PIV; aerodynamics; wing morphology; bats; wind tunnel; animal flight;

    Sammanfattning : Bats are the only mammals capable of flight, and they are the only animal flyers that are mammals. This thesis focuses on the latter of those facts, and investigates how bats fly, from an aerodynamic perspective. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Male moth behaviour and perception in pheromone plumes

    Detta är en avhandling från Department of Ecology, Lund University

    Författare :Peter Valeur; [1998]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Djurekologi; Animal ecology; Grapholita molesta; Noctuidae; Lepidoptera; Tortricidae; behaviour; electrophysiology; single cell; flight tunnel; sex pheromone; wind tunnel; radar; flight; pre-exposure; mechanisms of mating disruption; Agrotis segetum; choice test;

    Sammanfattning : Behaviour of male moths and electrophysiological responses of male pheromone-specific olfactory receptor neurones were studied in two model species, the oriental fruit moth Grapholita molesta and the turnip moth Agrotis segetum. The studies were aimed at elucidating the relative importance of different mating disruption mechanisms. LÄS MER
