- Sniffing by a silkworm moth: wing fanning enhances air penetration through and pheromone interception by antennaeC Loudon
Division of Biology, University of Kansas, Lawrence, KS 66045, USA
J Exp Biol 203:2977-90. 2000..023 m s(-1)), air flow through the gaps between the sensory hairs is approximately 560 times faster because a dramatic increase in the leakiness of the feathery antennae to air flow occurs at the air velocities produced by fanning...
