Morphology echolocation and resource partitioning in insectivorous bats
Cette etude a pour but de tester l'hypothese selon laquelle la morphologie de l'aile des chauves-souris determine la selection du site d'alimentation et les differences de morphologie entrainent leExpand

TLDR
There was a significant correlation between wing loading and turning curvature, indicating that low wing loadings improve manoeuvrability. Expand
Kinematics and aerodynamics of the greater horseshoe bat, Rhinolophus ferrumequinum, in horizontal flight at various flight speeds.

  • 1 November 1986
TLDR
The kinematics and aerodynamics of the greater horseshoe bat, Rhinolophus ferrumequinum, in horizontal flight at a range of velocities are described, with changes in the wings' incidence angles suggesting thrust generation and weight support and negative thrust. Expand
Manoeuvrability and ecological segregation in the little brown (Myotis lucifugus) and Yuma (M. yumanensis) bats (Chiroptera: Vespertilionidae)
TLDR
Myotis yumanensis has a lower wing loading and a lower wingspan than M. lucifugus, which probably explains the differences in manoeuvrability between the two species, and this difference was found to be correlated withWing loading and wingspan. Expand
THREE-DIMENSIONAL RECONSTRUCTION OF ANIMAL FLIGHT PATHS AND THE TURNING FLIGHT OF MICROCHIROPTERAN BATS
A method is presented by which a microcomputer is used to reconstruct the structure of a three-dimensional object from images obtained with a pair of non-metric cameras when the images contain theExpand
Variation in Habitat Use and Prey Selection by Yuma Bats, Myotis yumanensis
TLDR
Dietary variation suggests this species forages opportunistically on aquatic insects with changes in diet reflecting changes in availability. Expand
Body accelerations during the wingbeat in six bat species: the function of the upstroke in thrust generation
The kinematics and aerodynamics of Rhinolophus ferrumequinum, R. hipposideros, Myotis nattereri, M. mystacinus, Plecotus auritus and Eptesicus serotinus in horizontal flight at various flight speedsExpand
Roosting, vocalizations, and foraging by the African bat, Nycteris thebaica
The purpose of this study was to examine certain aspects of the roosting and foraging behavior of N. thebaica under natural conditions. We documented roost selection, vocalizations associated withExpand
