Ultraviolet-assisted oiling assessment improves detection of oiled birds experiencing clinical signs of hemolytic anemia after exposure to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill
- Environmental ScienceEcotoxicology
UV light evaluation can help identify oil exposure in many birds that would otherwise be identified visually as unexposed during oil spill events, and proves useful for enhancing detection of birds exposed to oil, but did not increase Detection of birds experiencing clinical signs of anemia compared to standard visual oiling assessment.

Discovery of riblets in a bird beak (Rynchops) for low fluid drag
- Environmental Science, EngineeringPhilosophical Transactions of the Royal Society A: Mathematical, Physical and Engineering Sciences
For the first time, riblet structures found on the beak of the skimmer bird have been studied experimentally and computationally for low fluid drag properties and a conceptual model is presented to explain a possible drag reduction mechanism in skimmers.
