  • Leading-edge vortices over swept-back wings with varying sweep geometries. [Journal Article]
    R Soc Open Sci 2019; 6(7):190514Lambert WB, Stanek MJ, … Hackett EE
  • Micro air vehicles are used in a myriad of applications, such as transportation and surveying. Their performance can be improved through the study of wing designs and lift generation techniques including leading-edge vortices (LEVs). Observation of natural fliers, e.g. birds and bats, has shown that LEVs are a major contributor to lift during flapping flight, and the common swift (Apus apus) has …
  • Artificial Light at Night Promotes Activity Throughout the Night in Nesting Common Swifts (Apus apus). [Journal Article]
    Sci Rep 2019; 9(1):11052Amichai E, Kronfeld-Schor N
  • The use of artificial light at night (ALAN) is a rapidly expanding anthropogenic effect that transforms nightscapes throughout the world, causing light pollution that affects ecosystems in a myriad of ways. One of these is changing or shifting activity rhythms, largely synchronized by light cues. We used acoustic loggers to record and quantify activity patterns during the night of a diurnal bird …
  • Mitochondrial genome diversity and evolution in Branchiopoda (Crustacea). [Journal Article]
    Zoological Lett 2019; 5:15Luchetti A, Forni G, … Mantovani B
  • CONCLUSIONS: Branchiopod mitogenomes appear rather well-conserved, although gene rearrangements have occurred. For the first time, it is reported a putative non-homologous recombination event involving a mitogenome, which produced a pseudogenic tRNA sequence. In addition, in line with data in the literature, we explain the higher substitution rate of Anostraca and Onychocaudata with the inferred GC substitution bias that occurred during their evolution.
  • Gliding for a free lunch: biomechanics of foraging flight in common swifts (Apus apus). [Journal Article]
    J Exp Biol 2018; 221(Pt 22)Hedrick TL, Pichot C, de Margerie E
  • Although the biomechanics of animal flight have been well studied in laboratory apparatus such as wind tunnels for many years, the applicability of these data to natural flight behaviour has been examined in few instances and mostly in the context of long-distance migration. Here, we used rotational stereo-videography to record the free-flight trajectories of foraging common swifts. We found that…
  • Morphology and morphometry of Haemonchus contortus exposed to Gigantochloa apus crude aqueous extract. [Journal Article]
    Vet World 2018; 11(7):921-925Widiarso BP, Kurniasih K, … Nurcahyo W
  • CONCLUSIONS: G. apus crude aqueous extract activity revealed morphology change such as cervical papillae, vulvar flab, gubernaculum, posterior end, and reduced morphometry measurement of H. contortus adult worms, notably in body length, body width, cervical papillae width, gubernaculum, and spicule length in males and body length, body width, cervical papillae width, and vulva length in females.
