  1. J. G. M. Kooloos & G. A. Zweers (1991). Integration of Pecking, Filter Feeding and Drinking Mechanisms in Waterfowl. Acta Biotheoretica 39 (2).score: 320.0
    This paper is one of several contributions in a series, illustrating the application of a specific deductive methodology to explain diversity of form. The methodology facilitates the explanation of feeding morphologies in various ducks as a transformation of the mallard's feeding design maximized for specific proportions of performance that are contributed by pecking and filter feeding mechanisms.The earlier described anatomy and formal analyses of the three mechanisms in the mallard served as the initial conditions used in simulation models. Four elements (...)

  2. G. A. Zweers (1985). Greek Classicism in Living Structure? Some Deductive Pathways in Animal Morphology. Acta Biotheoretica 34 (2-4).score: 320.0
    Classical temples in ancient Greece show two deterministic illusionistic principles of architecture, which govern their functional design: geometric proportionalism and a set of illusion-strengthening rules in the proportionalism's stochastic margin. Animal morphology, in its mechanistic-deductive revival, applies just one architectural principle, which is not always satisfactory. Whether a Greek Classical situation occurs in the architecture of living structure is to be investigated by extreme testing with deductive methods.Three deductive methods for explanation of living structure in animal morphology are proposed: the (...)
