7th meeting Avineck
The 7th meeting of the Avineck team took place in Paris during the first week of December 2019. It was the occasion to present and discuss the latest results on the anatomy, ecology and biomechanics of the neck in birds.
The list of recent achievements includes:
- Conference contributions (Conference of the French Society for Biomechanics in Poitiers, ICVM in Prague, International woodpecker Conference in Bialowieza, )
- Organized Symposium on the axial skeleton at the ICVM in Prague 2019
- Publications and conference papers (see below)
- Public relations
- and many more
Stay tuned for the next updates!
