In a new issue of the journal Bioinspiration & Biomimntics, a special section is devoted to nature-inspired flight. There is an emphasis on MAVs of various sorts, but also purely animal flight papers have been included. The issue has been edited by two well-known figures in our field, David Lentink and Andy Biewener. The latter is handling most of our mansucripts submitted to JEB. The two editors write an introductory essay, following by the original papers. Have a look here. There will be reason to return to these papers.
