Movement on land 5. An understanding and full appreciation beiwener animal locomotion requires the integration of these principles. Animal Locomotion Second Edition Andrew Biewener and Sheila Patek Provides complete, integrated coverage of nearly all modes of animal movement, emphasizing general principles in a clear and straightforward fashion Incorporates background material on the biomechanics and physiology of nervous, skeletal, and muscular components Adopts a renewed evolutionary approach to locomotion and includes new coverage of non-vertebrate animal locomotor systems.

They also must navigate similar physical properties of their environment. Movement is a fundamental distinguishing feature of animal life, and a variety of extremely effective mechanical and physiological designs have evolved. Alexa Actionable Analytics for the Web. The conservation an care was poor. Toward this end, we provide the necessary introductory foundation that will allow a more in-depth understanding of the physical biology and physiology of animal movement.

Common themes are observed for the ways in which animals successfully contend with the properties of a given physical environment across diversity of life forms and varying locomotor modes. It furthers the University’s objective of excellence in research, scholarship, and education by publishing worldwide.

Emphasis is placed on comparisons of energetic features across locomotor modes. Across scales and environments, this book oocomotion the biomechanics of animal movement with the physiology of animal energetics and the neural control of locomotion.

This book provides a clear foundation, based on physical biology and biomechanics, for understanding the underlying mechanisms by which animals have evolved to move in their physical environment.

Shopbop Designer Fashion Brands. Chapter 1 Physical and Biological Properties and Principles. Animals have evolved remarkable biomechanical and physiological systems that enable their rich repertoire of motion. Customers who bought this item also bought. Understanding the constraints of scale that underlie locomotor mechanisms is essential to appreciating how these mechanisms have evolved and how they operate.


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.
