Macroevolutionary patterns in mammalian locomotion

  Research Group: Interdisciplinary Centre for Ancient Life
PhD research in the lab of Dr. Katrina Jones investigating macroevolutionary patterns in mammalian locomotion. The lab uses a combination of quantitative shape analysis, biomechanics, and macroevolutionary analyses to understand major transitions in the evolution of mammals and their extinct relatives.

Flying underwater: multidisciplinary approaches to understanding the swimming dynamics of penguins

Penguins are highly adapted for both efficient cruising and rapid manoeuvring during underwater locomotion. From a biomechanical perspective some progress has been made into understanding the fluid dynamics surrounding their morphology, including the potential role of bubbles in reducing drag. Read more

(BBSRC DTP) Avian flight dynamics and control - a multidisciplinary approach

Gliding flight is a core mode of locomotion used by owls during predation. As well as being known as silent gliders, recently owls have been shown to exhibit high aerodynamic efficiency (low drag) during gliding, achieved through careful manipulation of their wings and tail (Song et al, 2020, Cheney et al 2020).

Understanding Life in the Freezer: locomotor performance as the key to understanding the possible influences of climate change in high Arctic species

Scientific research has focused on the Arctic recently as this region is at high risk from the effects of climate change. Animal energy budgets are linked to species survival and are composed of various factors including the cost of locomotion. Read more
