More About A Study of Bird Anatomy Including Bird Flight, Eggs, Beak, Vision, and Uropygial Gland by Patrick Sing
 
 
 
Overview
Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Bird anatomy, or the physiological structure of birds' bodies, shows many unique adaptations, mostly aiding flight. Birds have a light skeletal system and light but powerful musculature which, along with circulatory and respiratory systems capable of very high metabolic rates and oxygen supply, permit the bird to fly. The development of a beak has led to evolution of a specially adapted digestive system. These anatomical specializations have earned birds their own class in the vertebrate phylum. This book studies bird anatomy including parasitic drag, whiffling, flight call, bird vision, sclerotic ring, and coevolution. Project Webster represents a new publishing paradigm, allowing disparate content sources to be curated into cohesive, relevant, and informative books. To date, this content has been curated from Wikipedia articles and images under Creative Commons licensing, although as Project Webster continues to increase in scope and dimension, more licensed and public domain content is being added. We believe books such as this represent a new and exciting lexicon in the sharing of human knowledge.
