Genetic diversity of beak
and feather disease virus detected in psittacine species in Australia [published correction appears in Virology.
Subsequently, a variance analysis was performed, in which the effects of the rearing system, the beak
trimming method and the respective interactions were tested.
Due to this kind of evolution, traits like beaks
and shells evolved independently of each other and primitive turtle species featured differently developed combinations of shells and beaks
The white beak
sedge had not been seen in Greater Manchester for 150 years until it was spotted recently at Astley Moss MARK CHAMPION
This robin was caught by the beak
when he tried to pinch cheese from a garden
We used tools that worked the same way as different bird beaks
do: tweezers, straws, chopsticks, and forks.
Caption: This toucan got a replacement beak
after an attack left her badly injured.
The resectoscope beak
detachment in the bladder is a rare and unexpected occurrence.
Psittacosaurus, an early member of the horned-dinosaur group that includes the massive Triceratops, had a short face and a strong beak
to eat plants, and boasted bristly long filaments above the tail.
These are converted into red ketocarotenoids which are then deposited in beaks
and feathers, giving a red tint to that part of the bird.
Genetic variants of the HMGA2 gene control beak
size in the birds, evolutionary geneticist Leif Andersson and colleagues now report.
has had just the one start to date when he was something of a rare first-time-out winner for hughie Morrison at Windsor last October.
