This story definitely has legs. We're referring, of course, to Young-Hui Chang and Lena Ting's new research on how flamingos are able to stand on one leg and the possible reasons why these gangly birds do it. The major media mentions are racking up, including this New York Times story. Altmetric, a service that measures mentions and other interest in research papers, had this study listed in the top 5% percent of its Attention Score rank in its first 24 hours of publication. Chang is a professor in the School of Biological Sciences. Ting is a professor in the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering.
