A comparative study of feather morphogenesis and the development of feather pattern in normal and talpid3 embryos has been carried out.. The development of talpid3 CAM grafts shows that the effect of the gene is autonomous in the skin.. The most striking effect of the gene upon feather morphogenesis is the failure of normal feather germ condensations to appear within the dermis. This is reflected in the abnormal distribution of alkaline phosphatase through the dermis.. Dermal cells within and between condensations are not orientated in the mutant as they are in normal embryos, probably owing to the same defect in cell behaviour which causes condensation failure in talpid3 precartilage mesenchyme.. The role of dermal cell orientation and movement in generating the overall feather pattern is examined in both normal and talpid3 embryos.. ...
The aim of this study was the analysis and characterization of composites based on thermoplastics (ethylene vinyl acetate, polypropilene and high-density polyethylene) and chicken feathers. Several composite samples with a content of 20% v/v of chicken feathers have been studied to determine the optimal manufacturing conditions of temperature, mixing time, and mixing speed to achieve the best tensile properties. The results have shown that the addition of micronized chicken feather (20% v/v) to thermoplastic matrices increases stiffness and provides a more brittle behavior. Ethylene vinyl acetate matrix also shows an ability to participate in second-order intermolecular interactions with chicken feathers, providing better tensile properties (tensile strength and toughness) than polypropilene and high-density polyethylene. Optimal manufacturing conditions were found for a mixing time of around 5min; a mixing speed of 50rmin 1 ; and temperature values of 160 C in case of high-density polyethylene, ...
The formation of complex ectodermal organs begins with multipotent stem cells that undergo many basic cellular events. During the formation of a complex organ, there are many factors that need to be considered such as patterning, size, and shape in order to maintain proper organ function. Feather development is a good model. The feather field must be patterned to establish how many feathers, the size must be determined, and the shape of the feather must be appropriate for its function. Canonical and non-canonical Wnt signaling has been implicated in many crucial steps in feather bud development.; Canonical Wnt signaling involves the stabilization and accumulation of beta-catenin, which is subsequently translocated to the nucleus. There, beta-catenin interacts with various coactivators including CREB-binding protein (CBP) and p300, which results in the expression of different genes downstream of beta-catenin/TCF that may direct cells towards a path of pluripotency or differentiation. One of the ...
These earrings have such nice dimension: the fifth photo shows it well. The feathers are all peacock feathers. Facing both forward and backward, these earrings have a green/gold feather backed by a white feather that helps show off all the lovely colors and details of the feathers as well as the dark wooden square. The last photo shows that the backs of the earrings look as fabulous as the fronts. The wood separates the pairs of feathers allowing them to curve naturally inward without meshing together. Lots of detail here along with movement and a bit of tinkling in your ear! These earrings are a great length for someone who likes the idea of hanging peacock feathers from their earlobes, but isnt interested in long tail feather earrings. My feathers are all left their natural colors and are cruelty free. They are gathered from the ground of my fathers property ...

Bird feathers can contain pigmentation for a wide range of colors, with specific molecules reflecting certain hues when light touches them. They also can display structural colors, where the thicknesses of layers of cells and connective tissues are fine-tuned to refract certain colors.. Scientists recently described structural coloration that is still clearly discernible in well-preserved fossil feathers. Why do these fossil feathers have their original cell structures laid out in the original patterns if they are millions of years old?. In 1995, paleontologists Derek Briggs and Paul Davis provided an overview of fossil feathers from the 40 or so places on the globe where they were known to exist.1 Among their findings was that 69 percent of feather fossils are preserved not as impressions, but as carbon traces. This was verified by comparing the proportions of carbon in both the surrounding carbonaceous rock and the fossil within it, to the proportions of organically-derived carbon from the ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Degradation and regeneration of feather keratin in NMMO solution. AU - Ma, Bomou. AU - Sun, Qisong. AU - Yang, Jing. AU - Wizi, Jakpa. AU - Hou, Xiuliang. AU - Yang, Yiqi. PY - 2017/7/1. Y1 - 2017/7/1. N2 - Chicken feather, a potential source of keratin, is often disposed as waste material. Although some methods, i.e., hydrolysis, reduction, and oxidation, have been developed to isolate keratin for composites, it has been limited due to the rising environmental concerns. In this work, a green solvent N-methylmorpholine N-oxide (NMMO) was used to extract keratin from chicken feather waste. Eighty-nine percent of keratin was extracted using 75% NMMO solution. However, the result from size exclusion HPLC showed that most of the keratin degraded into polypeptide with molecular weight of 2189 and only 25.3% regenerated keratin was obtained with molecular weight of 14,485. Analysis of amino acid composition showed a severe damage to the disulfide bonds in keratin during the extraction ...
Thanks for sharing this story. A male cardinal brings his three fledglings to my feeder regularly now. One fledgling misses some of its tail feathers. I am worried that it probably could not survive when father stops to feed them. And it is happening now when two of they can eat on the feeder by themselves, father begins chasing them away from feeder. If tail feathers can regrow for cardinal, the one with incomplete tail feathers can survive in the future too;) ...
Assuming hypothetical feathers on dinosaurs functioned as modern feathers do, they must consist of all the required working parts. Even the angle, thickness, shape, and construction of the parts must all exist and be assembled within narrow tolerances.5 So far, Darwinists have only impressions of protofeathers that they assume were structures on the way to becoming modern feathers. But until they became functional feathers, it appears they would have decreased a creatures fitness, making them less likely to persist in future generations.6. Consequently, a biblical creation worldview rejects the supposition that protofeathers were structures on the way to evolving into flight feathers. So, what were they? Possibly skin collagen fibers, not feathers. Some resemble fossil preparation marks, which are caused by tools used to uncover and excavate fossils. For these reasons, many researchers are skeptical of inferring feathers when there are no feathers preserved with bona fide dinosaurs in the ...

Our research provides extraordinary insights into the origin of feathers. In particular, it helps to resolve a long-standing debate about the original function of feathers - whether they were used for flight, insulation, or display, says Professor Mike Benton, Professor of Palaeontology at the University of Bristol. We now know that feathers came before wings, so feathers did not originate as flight structures.. We therefore suggest that feathers first arose as agents for colour display and only later in their evolutionary history did they become useful for flight and insulation.. According to Dr Paddy Orr, UCD School of Geological Sciences, University College Dublin, one of the scientists involved in the research, melanosomes are colour-bearing organelles buried within the structure of feathers and hair in modern birds and mammals, giving black, grey, and rufous tones such as orange and brown. Because melanosomes are an integral part of the tough protein structure of the feather, they ...
Feather is known for its robust regenerative ability. Stem cells in the feather have recently been mapped. However different parts of the chicken body have different size feathers. How stem cells are managed differently in these different feathers has not been elucidated. Here we analyze the growth pattern of feathers from neck and saddle feather. We analyze the topological arrangement of stem cell, TA cell, differentiated cell during different regenerative feather cycling. We found the stem cell is in a ring configuration during growth phase but shifted down to smaller ring or to assume a Ushape flanking the dermal papilla. The number of stem cells remains rather constant during stem cell cycling but also changes around three folds. On the contrast the number of TA cells change up to twenty thirty fold differences. There also appear to have higher stem cell number and a larger dermal papilla in the saddle compared to the neck feather. We found N-CAM and Tenascin-C expressed in the niche next to ...
Feathers are little too perfect, that is the problem. Feathers give no indication that they ever needed improvement. In fact, the earliest known fossil feather is so modern-looking as to be indistinguishable from the feathers birds flying today. The fossil feather is from archaeopteryx, an extinct creature sometimes presented as a missing link in the line of descent to modern birds. Most paleontologists, however, no longer consider it an ancestor of modern birds. Yet, evolutionary theory teaches that feathers must be the result of gradual, cumulative change in earlier skin outgrowths. Moreover, feathers could not have evolved without some plausible adaptive value in all of the intermediate steps ...
Knowing that chicken feathers are 98% keratin-a water-insoluble protein-and that proteins are a key element for creating absorbent materials, the researcher and two of her students decided to use feather byproduct to synthesize bio-based superabsorbent hydrogels. To that end, they modified the structure of the keratin to absorb certain liquids, such as motor oil and diesel. The result: in the laboratory, their keratin-based hydrogels presented a greater oil holding capacity than polypropylenes derived from petrochemicals. Dumont and her team are now working on enhancing the performance of these hydrogels for wide-scale use. Possible uses include agriculture water conservation and fixing heavy metals found in soil or in watercourses.. Professor Dumont used the same approach to valorize another by-product: zein, obtained during the production of vegetable oil. The structure of this protein was modified by hydrolysis to adsorb copper, a heavy metal found in the food chain. Early trials show that ...

The brilliant red, orange and yellow colours of parrot feathers are the product of psittacofulvins, which are synthetic pigments known only from parrots. Recent evidence suggests that some pigments in bird feathers function not just as colour generators, but also preserve plumage integrity by increasing the resistance of feather keratin to bacterial degradation. We exposed a variety of colourful parrot feathers to feather-degrading Bacillus licheniformis and found that feathers with red psittacofulvins degraded at about the same rate as those with melanin and more slowly than white feathers, which lack pigments. Blue feathers, in which colour is based on the microstructural arrangement of keratin, air and melanin granules, and green feathers, which combine structural blue with yellow psittacofulvins, degraded at a rate similar to that of red and black feathers. These differences in resistance to bacterial degradation of differently coloured feathers suggest that colour patterns within the ...

In a recent exhibit in London, a circuit board made from soybeans and chicken feathers drew a great deal of attention. The board was developed by Mingjiang Zhan and Richard Wool in collaboration with Intel. A micrograph of feathers (seen here) shows
SEM investigation of representative isolated feathers from Messel showed that the keratin has degraded, exposing the melanosomes, which display two main types of organization. Most feathers revealed elongate oblate eumelanosomes roughly aligned along barbs and barbules, with little variation in their morphology or arrangement over the surface of the feather (as in the Crato example illustrated by Vinther et al. 2008). Three contour feathers, on the other hand, showed a striking contrast in the arrangement of melanosomes in the proximal and distal regions of the feather. These specimens range up to 3 cm in length. In the best-preserved specimen (SMF ME 3850, figure 1a), the basal 20 mm of the vane displays a closed pennaceous structure with interlocking barbules. The distal 8 mm of the vane has a conspicuously open pennaceous structure with prominent barbules that do not overlap or interlock. The barbules, which are 10-15 µm wide and oriented to the barb ramus at approximately 30°, are ...
Second, we have discovered a lot about the evolution of feathers which Carl Zimmer outlines in an article for National Geographic (read it here). Bird feathers are marvels of the biological world which have perplexed many scientists. Shortly after Darwin published On the Origin of Species, paleontologists unearthed archaeopteryx with a mixture of avian and reptilian traits. Most importantly, this bird/reptile had feathers. Later on, scientists discovered more similarities between our modern birds and the extinct dinosaurs. Theropod dinosaurs (T. rex and Velociraptors) shared many anatomical and behavioral similarities with birds, but most importantly they had feathers even though they were far to big to fly. It seems the fight evolved from reptiles with feathers, rather than feathers evolving in flying reptiles. ...
Zia, Farhana. Lalis Feather. Peachtree, 2020. 978-1-682-63129-4. Unpaged. $17.99. Grades PreK-2.. Lali is a young girl living in India who finds a feather on the ground. She asks a number of birds if this feather belongs to them. A rooster, crow, peacock, and other birds deny that the plain feather is theirs. Lali then shows that the feather is useful and uses it to write, sweep, and even to tickle her fathers feet. Then, the feather catches the wind and blows away and the distraught Lali runs after it. With the help of her bird friends, the feather is retrieved and the next day, Lali finds a button. The digitally created illustrations by Stephanie Fizer Coleman are colorful and engaging. The artist gives a hint of the Indian landscape and culture in the drawings.. THOUGHTS: This story is a good read aloud and could be a discussion starter for ideas about what Lali will do next with the button. A supplemental purchase for elementary collections..

Optimal medium was used to improve the production of keratinase by Bacillus licheniformis ZJUEL31410, which has a promising application in the transformation of feather into soluble protein. The results of single factor design revealed that the concentration of feather at 20 g/l and the initial pH at value 8 was the best for the production of keratinase and the degradation of feather. Ammonia salt and nitrate salt strongly restricted the production of keratinase and the degradation of feather. Result of Box-Behnken design (BBD) experiment which was used to optimize concentrations of glucose, corn steep flour and K2HPO4 for further improvement of keratinase productivity showed that the optimal medium was composed of glucose (20 g/l), corn steep flour (7.5 g/l), K2HPO4 (1 g/l) and feather (20 g/l). The result of submerged batch cultivation of B. licheniformis ZJUEL31410 in the 5 L fermentor indicated that the optimal medium had the highest keratinase and the degree of feather degradation (DFD) at ...
Plumage (Latin: plūma feather) refers both to the layer of feathers that cover a bird and the pattern, colour, and arrangement of those feathers. The pattern and colours of plumage differ between species and subspecies, and may vary with age classes. Within species there can be different colour morphs. The placement of feathers on a bird are not haphazzard, but rather emerge in organized, overlapping rows and groups, and these feather tracts are known by standardized names. Most birds moult, usually before and after breeding, resulting in a breeding or nuptial plumage and a basic plumage. Many ducks and some other species such as the red junglefowl have males wearing a bright nuptial plumage while breeding and a drab eclipse plumage for some months afterwards. The painted buntings juveniles have two inserted moults in their first autumn, each yielding plumage like an adult females. The first starts a few days after fledging replacing the juvenile plumage with an auxiliary formative plumage; ...

We predicted that habitat quality, T, and energetic condition would be positively related to the quality of colorful feathers. In studies focused on the breeding season, these factors have been known to influence feather color (e.g., Hill and Montgomerie 1994; Blâs et al. 2007; Ferns and Hinsley 2008; Lindsay et al. 2011; Barron et al. 2013). Here, however, we experimentally induced colorful plumage production in a wintering migratory bird and failed to find support for these predictors. Furthermore, we found that the quality of colorful feathers is diminished when replaced on the wintering grounds, particularly for mature males. Our findings suggest that 1) condition-mediated mechanisms for plumage quality may not be operating in winter and 2) there is a significant cost to plumage quality when feathers are lost in winter. Furthermore, we suggest that plumage maturation in young males may be accelerated by events that induce feather replacement.. Both ASY and SY males exhibited reductions in ...
One-step RT-PCR was performed on the total RNA extracted from the same samples as in virus isolation to detect the H5 AI virus gene (SuperScript One-Step RT-PCR System; Invitrogen, Carlsbad, CA, USA). The 1:10 dilution of RNA templates was used for feathers. The primers used were H5-248-270F and H5-671-647R; the expected product was 424 bp (7). The sensitivity of RT-PCR was slightly higher than that of virus isolation except for the results with cloacal swabs (Table).. Immunohistochemical testing was performed to detect influenza virus nucleoprotein in the feather tissue by using a rabbit polyclonal antibody (ab22285; Abcam Ltd., Cambridge, UK). Virus antigens were detected in feather epidermal cells from days 3 through 6 pi, and in a few stromal cells in the feather pulp on days 3 and 4 pi (Appendix Figure, panel C).. Our results indicate that larger amounts of viruses can be isolated for a longer time from feathers than from swabs. Therefore, feathers can be considered useful samples for ...
On the above mentioned episode of From the Top, Chris ORiley asks a young cellist Are you a rock or a feather? I missed the context of the question. Does he ask everybody this? The kid was decisive about being a rock, and I guess that is what it takes to be a concert pianist at 17 that gets asked questions on NPR. I feel markedly more feathery, and only partially the float in the breeze sense. Feathers are the evolution of dinosaur scales, the bright colors that get you laid, and the coat that keeps the rain and the cold out. Im still thinking about the feathers on the drunken chicken from Tuesday, but havent given a thought to the trillions of tons of rock on which the two of us stood. A rock will sit in that stream and takes what-may until it erodes off while the one with the feathers skips from rock to rock without even getting its feet wet. The feather needs the rock, and the rock gets along for a million billion years just fine without the feather. One might strive to be a rock, but ...
Male blue-black grassquit feather barbules present a single keratin layer over a layer comprising melanin granules. This simple arrangement is sufficient to produce iridescent coloration, as confirmed by thin-film optical modelling. Shifts in hue and shape of the reflected spectrum derived from changing angles of light incidence were well explained by the modelled differences in the optical path that light encounters at each angle. This result reinforces the conclusion that these barbules are photonic structures that interact with light as predicted by the thin-film models of refraction.. Thin-film optical modelling also revealed that light can only penetrate the melanin layer and interact with the keratin core when the melanin layer is sufficiently thin (fewer than two melanin granules, on average). Although this configuration can be found in some male grassquit feathers, most individuals have melanin layers of two to three granules, with little variation across average values. This suggests ...

February 24, 2005. Agricultural Research Service (ARS) scientists who have developed a method to turn chicken feathers into plastic products are continuing to bring the technology closer to the marketplace. ARS chemist Walter Schmidt developed the technology to clean feathers and separate them into chopped fibers and quill pieces. Now Schmidt and fellow ARS chemist Justin Barone have developed and applied for a patent for a process to convert cleaned and chopped feather material into plastic products on a laboratory scale. Schmidt and Barone work in ARS Environmental Quality Laboratory in Beltsville, Md. According to Barone, the material is made on traditional plastics processing equipment using chopped chicken feathers and other easily obtainable, naturally derived materials. The feather-derived plastic can be molded just like any other plastic and has properties very similar to commodity plastics such as polyethylene and polypropylene. This makes the feather-derived plastic a unique material ...

Background The holotype of the theropod non-avian dinosaur Microraptor gui from the Early Cretaceous of China shows extensive preservation of feathers in a halo around the body and with flight feathers associated with both the fore and hindlimbs. It has been questioned as to whether or not the feathers did extend into the halo to reach the body, or had disassociated and moved before preservation. This taxon has important implications for the origin of flight in birds and the possibility of a four-winged gliding phase. Methodology/Principal Findings Examination of the specimen under ultraviolet light reveals that these feathers actually reach the body of the animal and were not disassociated from the bones. Instead they may have been chemically altered by the body tissues of the animal meaning that they did not carbonise close into the animal or more likely were covered by other decaying tissue, though evidence of their presence remains. Conclusions/Significance These UV images show that the feathers

There are both medical and non-medical causes for feather picking. The major medical causes include changes in hormone levels, external and internal parasites, malnutrition, internal disease, and bacterial or fungal infections of the skin and/or feather follicles. Interestingly, and con to popular opinion, external parasites (mites in particular) are extremely rare among caged birds. The non medical causes are psychologic and/or stress related. Infection with the 1-celled intestinal parasite, Giardia, may be related to feather picking. Many birds with giardiasis, especially parakeets, cockatiels and some lovebirds, also show intense feather pulling, self-mutilation and loud screaming Giardiasis is diagnosed by microscopic fecal examination. Treatment is difficult and may be unsuccessful. Further, giardiasis, can be transmitted to people. Feather picking is generally a problem of birds in captivity. Wild birds do not feather pick because they are too preoccupied with their own survival and with ...

A 4-cm piece of amber discovered among thousands of others in a quarry from southwestern France is helping to bridge a gap in our knowledge of the early development of feathers. The amber dates from the Early Cretaceous period, around 100 million years ago, and encases at least seven beautifully preserved feathers of a primitive type never seen before. They represent a critical stage in the evolution of feathers.. Conventional imaging techniques using transmitted light microscopes were used first (Figure 144) but this did not reveal sufficient information for a precise assessement of the morphology of the feathers. Phase contrast X-ray synchrotron imaging techniques have already demonstrated their power on fossil inclusions in amber [1], so we decided to apply such methods to image the unique fossil feathers. To reveal the finest structures of the feathers in three dimensions, a mosaic of 6 scans was performed using a single-distance phase retrieval approach (holotomography) with a voxel size of ...
One-hundred twenty individually fed steer calves were used to evaluate feather meal as a source of sulfur amino acids. Treatment proteins included a urea control and meat and bone meal (6.4% of dietary DM) plus 0, 1, or 2% feather meal with incremental levels of rumen protected methionine. Adding feather meal to meat and bone meal resulted in a linear increase in gain. Likewise, rumen-protected methionine also improved gain. These results indicate feather meal can provide a portion of the sulfur amino acids lacking in meat and bone meal. However, additional methionine may further improve performance.

The ulna of Dakotaraptor shows a row of 10 oblong protuberances, interpreted as being quill knobs, or ulnar papilli; attachment points for flight feathers. These have been detected before in Theropod Dinosaurs, particularly Dromaeosaurids, as well as being known in modern and Mesozoic Birds. Importantly, in modern Birds, these structures only develop in species that place exceptional stresses on the wing feathers during flight. Since the size and shape of Dakotaraptor makes it highly unlikely that it was capable of any form of flight, it seems likely that it was placing stress on its wing feathers engaging in some other form of activity. This has been seen previously in other Dromaeosaurids deemed unlikely fliers (for example Velociraptor) and has led to a number of suggestions as to possible uses for wing feathers in Dromaeosaurids, such as brooding eggs and young or subduing prey. DePalma et al. feel that the brooding young explanation cannot explain the deep ulnar papilli seen in Dakotaraptor ...

January 24, 2012-Scientists have determined the color of a fossilized feather of Archaeopteryx, a birdlike dinosaur that represents an evolutionary transition between dinosaurs and todays birds.In research partially funded by the National Geographic Society and headed by Ryan Carney of Brown University, investigators used a specialized type of electron microscope to determine the pigmentation of the feather, which they say was black.                                                                           .
A good nights sleep starts with comfortable bedding. The most important part of that bedding is the pillow. The pillow helps support the head and keeps the spine aligned correctly. Just as there are many types of sheets, blankets, and coverlets, there is more than one type of pillow. Two very popular types of pillows are feather pillows and goose down pillows. There are differences between the two one should know before deciding between the two. Pillow Density Makes a Difference. Pillow density is made up of the number of feathers or goose down packed into the pillow. Obviously the more feathers the more likely the pillow is to be firm. For some people, a firm pillow is just what they need. Other people prefer to be able to manipulate the pillow a bit more for their perfect nights sleep. Fortunately, there is a choice between firm, medium, and soft goose feather down pillows.. How You Sleep Will Determine The Best Pillow Choice. Not all people sleep the same way.

Beginning in 1985, a group including astronomer Fred Hoyle and physicist Lee Spetner published a series of papers claiming that the feathers on the Berlin and London specimens of Archaeopteryx were forged.[85][86][87][88] Their claims were repudiated by Alan J. Charig and others at the Natural History Museum in London.[89] Most of their evidence for a forgery was based on unfamiliarity with the processes of lithification; for example, they proposed that, based on the difference in texture associated with the feathers, feather impressions were applied to a thin layer of cement,[86] without realizing that feathers themselves would have caused a textural difference.[89] They also misinterpreted the fossils, claiming that the tail was forged as one large feather,[86] when visibly this is not the case.[89] In addition, they claimed that the other specimens of Archaeopteryx known at the time did not have feathers,[85][86] which is incorrect; the Maxberg and Eichstätt specimens have obvious ...

This lavishly illustrated work tells how all the birds helped Peacock get his beautiful tail. Under a snowy landscape naked birds huddle in burrows, trying to keep warm without feathers. They decide to ask the wise full moon what they should do in the spring, when they can venture back outside. The creamy moon is shocked at the sight of the naked birds under the midnight blue night sky and advises them to rub against the flowers first thing the next morning. Delighting in the riot of springtime colors, all the birds, except the still-sleeping peacock, pick up the colors of the cherry blossoms, tulips, and green grass. The early birds get the colors but agree to share their new feathers when the still-naked peacock stumbles into their celebration. That night the moon sees Peacocks hodgepodge of borrowed feathers and surrounds him in moonbeams to create a fantastic tail. VERDICT: This delightful pourquoi tale will be a great addition to storytimes, and the detailed illustrations invite individual ...

The population of Barn Swallow has been declining over the years in each state. Barn Swallows are known by many ornithologists as distant travelers that cross thousands of miles during winter from the north region to south region. This research was conducted at Serian District, Town that is very famous for the perching sites of Barn Swallow. The main objective of this research is to estimate the population density of Barn Swallow in Serian town. The density of Barn Swallow in Serian Town is five individual in one kilometer square. The Barn Swallow was sighted perching at three area that were wired cable along the road, building in Serian Town and tree. To calculate the number of barns swallow, estimation method was used.. ...
Heated chicken feathers can efficiently store hydrogen without a huge price tag, say chemical engineers at the University of Delaware. Annie Glausser reports.
The male barn swallow returns to the breeding grounds before the females and selects a nest site, which is then advertised to females with a circling flight and song. The breeding success of the male is related to the length of the tail streamers, with longer streamers being more attractive to the female.[4][44] Males with longer tail feathers are generally longer-lived and more disease resistant, females thus gaining an indirect fitness benefit from this form of selection, since longer tail feathers indicate a genetically stronger individual which will produce offspring with enhanced vitality.[45] Males in northern Europe have longer tails than those further south; whereas in Spain the males tail streamers are only 5% longer than the females, in Finland the difference is 20%. In Denmark, the average male tail length increased by 9% between 1984 and 2004, but it is possible that climatic changes may lead in the future to shorter tails if summers become hot and dry.[46]. Males with long ...
Endothelin receptor B subtype 2 (EDNRB2) is a seven-transmembrane G-protein coupled receptor. In this study, we investigated EDNRB2 gene as a candidate gene for duck spot plumage pattern according to studies of chicken and Japanese quail. The entire coding region was cloned by the reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR). Sequence analysis showed that duck EDNRB2 cDNA contained a 1311bp open reading frame and encoded a putative protein of 436 amino acids residues. The transcript shared 89%-90% identity with the counterparts in other avian species. A phylogenetic tree based on amino acid sequences showed that duck EDNRB2 was evolutionary conserved in avian clade. The entire coding region of EDNRB2 were sequenced in 20 spot and 20 non-spot ducks, and 13 SNPs were identified. Two of them (c.940G|A and c.995G|A) were non-synonymous substitutions, and were genotyped in 647 ducks representing non-spot and spot phenotypes. The c.995G|A mutation, which results in the amino acid substitution of

Yes, you read it right; real feathers on nails! Pammi Lall, Director, Bio Sculpture India, explains the procedure, just to clear the confusions that might be running in your head. The feathers used for this nail art are sterilized on reception so there is no chance of any infection being caused. The feathers are treated and cleaned well, that is our top priority, says Pammi. Once you are through with that, a base colour is applied to your nails. The feather is then placed on your nails and sealed with gel that is cured under the LED lamp for 30 seconds. There is absolutely no use of glue to keep the feather in place but only gels as the health of the nail is important, she adds ...
Theory predicts that sexually dimorphic traits under strong sexual selection, particularly those involved with intersexual signaling, can accelerate speciation and produce bursts of diversification. Sexual dichromatism (sexual dimorphism in color) is widely used as a proxy for sexual selection and is associated with rapid diversification in several animal groups, yet studies using phylogenetic comparative methods to explicitly test for an association between sexual dichromatism and diversification have produced conflicting results. Sexual dichromatism is rare in frogs, but it is both striking and prevalent in African reed frogs, a major component of the diverse frog radiation termed Afrobatrachia. In contrast to most other vertebrates, reed frogs display female-biased dichromatism in which females undergo color transformation, often resulting in more ornate coloration in females than in males. We produce a robust phylogeny of Afrobatrachia to investigate the evolutionary origins of sexual ...
Within-population colour variation is widespread in animals, yet the determinants of variable coloration have been relatively neglected by ecologists. Age-dependent expression of conspicuous coloration is prevalent, particularly in birds. Such patterns can be generated by multiple combinations of demographic heterogeneity or within-individual change; longitudinal analyses are necessary to establish the importance of these processes. Further, although pigment-based colours are composite traits, produced by multiple component mechanisms (e.g. feather microstructure and carotenoid pigmentation), the contributions of these mechanisms to components of age dependence are rarely considered, even though doing so may yield information about the ecological causes for age-dependent coloration. We used a large-scale, longitudinal study of carotenoid-based plumage coloration in great tits (Parus major) to show age dependence of plumage coloration is driven almost exclusively by within-individual effects in the first
Peacocks can teach us about eye color Eye color and peacock feathers have something in common that may surprise you.

Nothing is as it seems. This feather (see here) is actually from a Blue Jay, and it is actually sitting on a Dogwood leaf. The leaf is really green with chlorophyll, and components of the feather are really white and dark gray, but the blue color is an illusion. This single secondary wing feather reveals that Blue Jay blue is not really blue. Other famous blue birds such as the Eastern Bluebird (see here) and the Indigo Bunting (see here) are equally untrue in their hue. The proof is in their plume particulars.. Color is a gift from the whole white light of the sun. White light is a combination of Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo & Violet as any rainbow will tell you. All color is the result of that light reflecting back into our brains. True colors pigments are chemicals that selectively reflect parts of the color spectrum of light. Cardinal Red, for instance, results from a pigment that absorbs all other light waves and only reflects the red spectrum. In other words, there is an actual ...

Poultry lice are wingless, straw-colored insects that feed on dry skin scales, scabs, and feathers. A poultry louse spends its entire life on its bird host; if it falls off the bird, it wont survive long in the environment - maybe a few days. Lice know what they like, and poultry lice like chickens, not people or pets. If a poultry louse climbs on you, it wont stay long.. Louse infestations are a drag, especially for young chickens, making them jumpy and slow to grow. Fertility and egg production declines for infested adults. The plumage of lousy birds looks patchy and moth-eaten.. Female lice lay their eggs (nits) in clumps on feather shafts. Inspect birds at least twice a month, spreading the feathers in the vent, breast, and thigh areas, looking for nit clumps or pale, scurrying insects. Fall and winter are when most louse infestations are common.. ...
Much as I love all the new theories (new since my childhood anyway) about dinosaur coloring, and feathers, it mostly means that the kids books I read to my son about dinosaurs feature animals who appear to be wearing fringed feather sleeves, in lurid colors, over a typical scaly dinosaur skin. Maybe they did look like that, but mostly they look like that taxidermied lion, in terms of being a patchwork of guessed-at attributes. It doesnt help that no two artists seem clear on the proportionate size of a T-rexs arms to the rest of his body ...
The first feathers that appeared on dinosaurs were most likely for the purpose of attracting mates, not for flying, researchers said Thursday. The new conclusion was provided by the first discovery
Dinosaurs may have sported more feathers than scientists originally thought, and some are even debating whether most if not all had feathers.
For more on ABCs of parrot behavior, see http://www.thegabrielfoundation.org/PDFFiles/ABC.pdf. Observe your parrot, study his behavior patterns. Strive for objectivity. Get acquainted with what his body language looks like when hes startled or scared. With many species, the feathers will be held tightly in toward the body, the neck will elongate, and he may look rather wide-eyed. Anxiety in African Greys is often demonstrated by dancing from one leg to the other while biting the toenails of the elevated foot, or by twisting of the head in a figure-eight motion while seeming to look upward. Generalized anxiety or stress often results in lack of play, fewer vocalizations, and sometimes-decreased food intake. Extreme anxiety will result in the more obvious behaviors of feather picking or phobia. On the other hand, a relaxed, happy parrot will vocalize frequently, eat hungrily, preen normally and find ways to invite social contact with us. Happiness behaviors will also be observed. These ...
