To better understand the basis for this physiological feat, Scott et al. (2009) compared the flight muscle of Bar-headed Geese to that of low altitude birds (Barnacle Geese, Pink-footed Geese, Greylag Geese, and Mallard ducks). The bursa is a blind sac that extends from the dorsal side of the cloaca, the common portal of the reproductive, urinary, and digestive systems.

Major areas of study include zoology, biology, ornithology and ecology. Molecular diversity, metabolic transformation, and evolution of carotenoid feather pigments in cotingas (Aves: Cotingidae). Still others study how new animals are formed and how their characteristics are passed on from one generation to another.

Zoology is both descriptive and analytical. Our holdings of terrestrial mammals are strong in Chiropterans (bats), and rodents, especially Sciurids (squirrels), as well as in carnivores, bovids (especially antelopes), and marsupials. Zoology has thus given up its exclusive emphasis on animals—an emphasis maintained from Aristotle’s time well into the 19th century—in favour of a broader view of life. Secondary feathers are nearer the bird's body than the primary feathers, and are numbered from the outermost feather to the innermost.

Applicants must submit a completed graduate application form, the official record of performance on the GRE General Test, transcripts for all previous undergraduate and graduate studies; and letters of recommendation from three persons who can appraise the student's aptitude for graduate study. Ornithologists contribute to conservation biology by studying the ecology of birds in the wild and identifying the key threats and ways of enhancing the survival of species. [109] Critically endangered species such as the California condor have had to be captured and bred in captivity.

Research projects can be carried out in collaboration with active researchers at the University and also with relevant local authorities, businesses and/or consultancies. A unit normally consists of two lectures a week plus a three-hour practical on alternate weeks. And certainly you can't blame them for fleeing when something's telling them that the mercury will soon be hovering around the freezing mark.

The artwork was created using dead specimens from an Italian nobleman's ornithology collection as models, and the birds are displayed in rather dramatic, eye-catching poses. Zoological information can be organized into a hierarchy of topics that focus on different levels of organization: the molecular or cellular level, the individual organism level, the population level, the species level, the community level, the ecosystem level, and so forth. When selection pressures differ, however, differences arise.

The avian circulatory system consists of a heart plus vessels that transport: Birds, like mammals, have a 4-chambered heart (2 atria & 2 ventricles), with complete separation of oxygenated and de-oxygenated blood. April 24, 1998 No creature on Earth is faster than the peregrine falcon, a bird that can dive at 200 miles an hour to catch its dinner, or, in an extraordinary case that unfolded recently in Chicago, to terrify workers clinging to a scaffold. Mounted specimens are frequently used in public programming and exhibits to serve as objects of appreciation and as learning tools, illustrating of basic principles in biology.
