Finally, because convergence upon common designs and the generation of new designs result from historical processes governed by natural selection, it is also important that we ask how and why these systems have evolved. Academic Skip to main content. Oxford University PressMar 23, – Science – pages. The Best Locomotiin of Understanding the constraints of scale that underlie locomotor mechanisms is essential to appreciating how these mechanisms have evolved and how they operate.
Synopsis Product Biewwener Shipping Animals have evolved remarkable biomechanical and physiological systems that enable their rich repertoire of motion.

Would you like us to keep your Bookworld details, including delivery addresses, order history and citizenship information? Energetics of locomotion 4. Across scales and environments, this book integrates the biomechanics of animal movement with the physiology of animal energetics and the neural control of locomotion.
Biewener’s laboratory focuses on the biomechanics and neuromuscular control of terrestrial and aerial locomotion of vertebrate animals, with relevance to biorobotics and biomedical engineering. Across scales and environments, this book integrates the biomechanics of animal movement with the physiology of animal energetics and the neural control of locomotion.

Customer Reviews Be the first to review Animal Locomotion. More This book provides a synthesis of the physical, physiological, evolutionary, and biomechanical principles that underlie animal locomotion.
Print Save Cite Email Share. The first is that by comparing the modes and mechanisms by which animals have evolved the capacity for movement, we can understand the common principles that underlie each mode of locomotion.
In doing so, it examines the common principles of design and movement that animals have evolved to move through very different physical environments. Jumping, climbing and suspensory aanimal ; 8.
