     Aerodramus ist eine Vogelgattung in der Familie der Segler (Apodidae), deren Arten in tropischen und subtropischen Gebieten des südlichen Asiens, von Ozeanien und des Nordostens Australiens vorkommen.

    Ursprünglich wurden alle Salanganen einer einzigen Gattung zugeordnet. Eine Aufteilung auf zwei oder mehrere Gattungen wurde mehrfach diskutiert, die von R. K. Brooke 1970 vorgenommene Aufteilung auf drei Gattungen stieß erstmals auf breitere Zustimmung und wurde seit 2003 durch mehrere molekulargenetische Untersuchungen bestätigt.[1][2] Die mit Abstand größte Gattung ist dabei Aerodramus, darin enthalten sind die Arten, die über die Fähigkeit zur Echolokation verfügen.

     ... Folgende Arten werden der Gattung zugerechnet:

     ...     Palausalangane (Aerodramus pelewensis)

       Marianensalangane (Aerodramus bartschi)

       Karolinensalangane (Aerodramus inquietus)

       Atiusalangane (Aerodramus sawtelli)

       Polynesiensalangane (Aerodramus leucophaeus) ...

    Die im Jahre 2002 beschriebene ausgestorbene Mangaia-Salangane (Collocalia manuoi) gehört vermutlich ebenfalls in diese Gattung.  ...

     Apodidae- Swifts

     The Apodidae family includes the swifts. Swifts have forked tails and their wings have a boomerang shape when they are outstretched.

    Swifts spend most of their time in the air and cannot perch because their feet are so tiny! They use their tail feathers to help them land and move around on land. Swifts have short bills and are usually dull in color.

    Swifts often nest in caves or on cliffs. There are 102 species of swifts. Swift species are found everywhere, except for Antarctica. ...

    Order Apodiformes   Family Apodidae

     The swifts are a family, Apodidae, of highly aerial birds. They are superficially similar to swallows, but are actually not closely related to passerine species at all. Swifts are in the separate order Apodiformes, which they share with hummingbirds. The treeswifts are closely related to the true swifts, but form a separate family, the Hemiprocnidae. Swifts use their short legs only for clinging onto vertical surfaces or wires, and never land on the ground voluntarily.Because of this, and also because they usually fly fast and sledom alight, they are difficult to photograph. Often the best way to identify a swift is by where it is found. ...

    ... Genus Aerodramus

    These small swifts nest in caves. Unique among swifts, they use echolocation which enables them to navigate in caves. Because saliva is used to make the nests, some people consider them edible. ...

     The island swiftlet, also known as the Caroline swiftlet, Micronesian swiftlet, or Caroline Islands swiftlet, (Aerodramus inquietus) is a species of swift in the family Apodidae. Some taxonomists consider it to be a subspecies of the uniform swiftlet. It is endemic to the Caroline Islands, and its natural habitat is subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests.
