Avian Flight

John J. Videler

Oxford Ornithology Series

  • The first comprehensive publication on bird flight since Pennycuick's seminal 1989 work. A new overview of this dynamic field is long overdue
  • Incorporates insights from biology, physics and mathematics, and synthesises a broadly dispersed literature
  • Challenges well-established ideas and offers novel, and sometimes controversial, explanations for some of the gaps in current understanding
  • Text is clearly illustrated and equation free. Separate boxes contain formulae and more complex details
