Response to Lingham-Soliar: feather structure, biomechanics and biomimetics: the incredible lightness of being


In a recent article, Lingham-Soliar (2014) (hereafter L-S) discusses the structure and biomechanics of feather keratin. While the early sections of his study are interesting, informative and illuminating, I show here that his discussion of the earlier work of Nudds and Dyke (2010) has no basis in fact. In the latter section of his paper, L-S jumps from a… (More)
