Abstract

The work considers character of behavior in flight and discusses peculiarities of structural-functional organization of the wing apparatus of two representatives of insects—the migratory Asian locust Locusta migratoria (a low-maneuvering insect) and the dragonfly-darner Aeshna sp. (an insect able to perform complex maneuvers in air). The main principles underlying the insect wing apparatus activity are considered and the mechanisms allowing the dragonflies to perform complex maneuvers in the flight are analyzed in detail.
