Week 3 - Paper on the Evolution of Insect Flight

Hey folks,

Attached is the paper for discussion for next week. It's an oldie, but a goodie - it uses mechanical and mathematical models to discuss what the evolutionary origins of insect wings are. A caveat - this paper is MUCH more challenging that last week's. Give yourself plenty of time to sort through it - active reading is key here. Group 3 in Monday's lab (the back right table) and Group 8 in Tuesday's lab (the front right table) will be presenting. Email, comment, tweet or Facebook me any questions.
