Biomechanical Analysis of Woodpecker Response During Pecking Using a Two-Dimensional Computational Model.
Ganpule S, Sutar S, Shinde K. Ganpule S, et al. Front Bioeng Biotechnol. 2020 Jul 17;8:810. doi: 10.3389/fbioe.2020.00810. eCollection 2020. Front Bioeng Biotechnol. 2020. PMID: 32766228 Free PMC article.
For the pecking cycle simulated in this work, peak rotational velocity and acceleration were 15 rad/s and 7,057 rad/s(2). These peak values are commensurate with the kinematics threshold values reported in human TBI. ...The comparison of biomechanical response again …

Woodpecker drum evolution: An analysis of covariation in elements of a multicomponent acoustic display among and within species.
Moody NM, Vivlamore EK, Fuxjager MJ. Moody NM, et al. Evolution. 2022 Jul;76(7):1469-1480. doi: 10.1111/evo.14535. Epub 2022 Jun 17. Evolution. 2022. PMID: 35665503
Multicomponent signals are found throughout the animal kingdom, but how these elaborate displays evolve and diversify is still unclear. Here, we explore the evolution of the woodpecker drum display. Two components of this territorial sexually selected signal, drum speed an …

Biomechanism of impact resistance in the woodpecker's head and its application.
Wang L, Lu S, Liu X, Niu X, Wang C, Ni Y, Zhao M, Feng C, Zhang M, Fan Y. Wang L, et al. Sci China Life Sci. 2013 Aug;56(8):715-9. doi: 10.1007/s11427-013-4523-z. Epub 2013 Jul 10. Sci China Life Sci. 2013. PMID: 23838811 Review.
The woodpecker does not suffer head/eye impact injuries while drumming on a tree trunk with high acceleration (more than 1000g) and high frequency. The mechanism that protects the woodpecker's head has aroused the interest of ornithologists, biologists and sc …

Cranial kinesis facilitates quick retraction of stuck woodpecker beaks.
Van Wassenbergh S, Andries T, Pauly E, Abourachid A. Van Wassenbergh S, et al. J Exp Biol. 2022 Mar 1;225(5):jeb243787. doi: 10.1242/jeb.243787. Epub 2022 Mar 1. J Exp Biol. 2022. PMID: 35118496
Much like nails that are hammered into wood, the beaks of woodpeckers regularly get stuck upon impact. A kinematic video analysis of pecking by black woodpeckers shows how they manage to quickly withdraw their beaks, revealing a two-phase pattern: first a few degree …
