The difference in pressure between the upper and lower surfaces of a bird's wings that produces an upward force that causes the bird to rise
The opposite force exerted on a moving body by a fluid such as air or water.
the force air puts on objects.
surface, such as a bird's wing, whose shape moves air faster over the top than underneath it, allowing for flight
upward pushing force, which is greater than the downward pull of gravity, resulting in an upward direction
When an object travels through the air without much drag, it is called Aerodynamic.
the different factors that can change in an experiment
the quantity found by dividing the sum of all the quantities by the number of quantities
natural areas where certain kinds of plants and animals live and grow
a large region characterized by a specific type of climate and certain types of plant and animal communities

a behavior that an animal is born with and does not need to learn
the preserved remains or traces of an organism that lived in the past.
describes a type of organism that no longer exists anywhere on Earth
A species in danger of becoming extinct in the near future.
Carolus "Carl" Linnaeus
