An experimental study of the territorial function of vocal and visual display in the male red-winged blackbird (Agelaius phoeniceus)
TLDR
It is suggested that the observed results were probably due to the effects of muting and epaulet-colouration upon advertising song and song-spread and bill-up displays, and a three-level territorial defence system is proposed for this species. Expand
The Law of Corona and the Dielectric Strength of Air-IV The Mechanism of Corona Formation and Loss
  • F. Peek
  • Physics
  • Transactions of the American Institute of…
The mechanisms of corona and corona loss have been studied with the cathode-ray oscillograph. High voltage power of the order of 0.1 watt can be measured with an accuracy of 1 per cent with thisExpand
Effect of Altitude on the Spark-Over Voltages of Bushings, Leads and Insulators

The dielectric strength of air decreases with decreasing pressure and increasing temperature; that is, with the density. Therefore, at high altitudes where the barometric pressure is low, brushExpand
Repetitive vocalizations evoked by local electrical stimulation of avian brains. I. Awake chickens (Gallus Gallus).
TLDR
Electrical stimulation of the brain through 1178 chronically-implanted electrodes in 128 chickens consistently yielded repetitive vocalizations from 414 sites, interpreted to suggest a single set of neural mechanisms controlling repetitive vocalization. Expand
