RPhil - The changing shape of flies

17th November 2021 7:30 pm

From the tips of their antennae to the end of their legs, fly morphology is as varied and diverse as their ecology and habitat. They have adapted to living up Mountains, in caves, and some have even made it into the sea – but these aren’t the most extreme habitats – and in doing so they have evolved into many a different and splendid form. We are now studying these much maligned creatures with renewed interest thanks to our thirst for bio-inspired technology, from healing our wounds to exploring the space above us, these mechanical marvels help us in more ways than we know.
