Low Speed Avian Maneuvering Flight
CitationRos, Ivo. 2013. Low Speed Avian Maneuvering Flight. Doctoral dissertation, Harvard University.
AbstractLow speed avian maneuvering flight is an ecologically crucial behavior that has contributed to the explosive diversification of several avian taxa by allowing access to complex spatial environments. Negotiating a sharp aerial turn requires finely tuned interactions between an animal's sensory-motor system and its environment. My thesis work focuses on how aerodynamic forces, wing and body dynamics, and sensory feedback interact during aerial turning in the pigeon (Columba livea).
