JOURNAL OF EXPERIMENTAL BIOLOGY, no. 18.0 (2007): 3135-3146
Power output is a unifying theme for bird flight and considerable progress has been accomplished recently in measuring muscular, metabolic and aerodynamic power in birds. The primary flight muscles of birds, the pectoralis and supracoracoideus, are designed for work and power output, with large stress ( force per unit cross-sectional area...更多
