Beaks are increasingly recognised as important contributors to avian thermoregulation. Several studies supporting Allen's rule demonstrate how beak size is under strong selection related to latitude and/or air temperature (Ta). Moreover, active regulation of heat transfer from the beak has recently been demonstrated in a toucan (Ramphastos toco,(More)
The adsorption and assembly of large organic molecules on solid surfaces has attracted considerable attention in recent years [1], partly due to the interest from a basic science point of view, partly because of the potential applications in emerging nanotechnological fields, such as molecular electronics [2], optoelectronics [3], or nanomechanical sensors(More)
Temperature increases associated with climate change pose a substantial threat to arid-zone bird species. However, predicting vulnerability to high temperatures using species-specific, mechanistic data, and assessing how this varies within and among species, is complex, time consuming and expensive. Using the bird community of the southern Kalahari Desert,(More)
