... to progressive decreases in inspired oxygen levels of bar-headed geese ( Anser indicus ), birds that biannually migrate across the Himalayan mountains, with those of Andean geese ( Chloephaga melanoptera ) and crested ducks ( Lophonetta specularioides ), lifelong residents of the high Andes. We show that Andean...

...-dimensionally complex and not visible externally. Here we use a new in vivo X-ray motion analysis technique, X-ray reconstruction of moving morphology (XROMM), to create precise (±0.06 mm) 3-D animations of the quadrate, braincase, upper bill and mandible of three mallard ducks, Anas platyrhynchos . We defined...
