... mechanism. Here we tested the hypothesis that the antlion, Myrmeleon crudelis , has adaptations that facilitate fluid feeding in sandy habitats. We measured contact angles of water droplets and used the capillary-rise technique to assess mouthpart wettability. A structural organization was discovered...

... and fluid mechanics to study the capturing mechanisms of crude oil droplets and the filtering appendage's wettability by two species of barnacles ( Balanus glandula and Balanus crenatus ) and of the freshwater cladoceran Daphnia magna . Our results show that barnacle appendages behave as paddles and capture...

... by the physical characteristics of the waterfall substrate. In this study, we investigated the influence of surface wettability (hydrophobic versus hydrophilic surface charges) and substrate roughness on the passive adhesive system of four species of gobies with different climbing abilities. Overall, passive...
