Within each mode of locomotion, animals have evolved designs and mechanisms that effectively contend with the physical properties and forces imposed on them by their environment.

By comparing across species, common principles of design emerge. Chapter 4 Movement on Land. Eyes to See Michael F. Movement in air 7. 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.
Animals have evolved remarkable biomechanical and physiological systems that enable their rich repertoire of motion. Search my Subject Specializations: Classical, Early, and Medieval Plays and Playwrights: The Building Blocks of Animal Movement.

Bibliographic Information Print publication date: Animal Locomotion offers a fundamental understanding of animal movement through a broad comparative and integrative approach, including basic mathematics and physics, examination of new 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. She has received several honors, including a Guggenheim Fellowship, the George A.
Physical and biological properties and principles related to animal movement ; 2. Energy costs of locomotion ; The first is that by comparing the modes and mechanisms by which blewener have evolved the capacity for movement, we can understand the common principles that underlie each mode of locomotion.

In so doing, we hope that this book will illuminate the fundamentals and breadth of these systems, while inspiring our readers to look more deeply into the scientific literature and in Consequently, an integrative approach to organismal function that spans multiple levels of biological organization provides a strong understanding of animal locomotion.

Patek’s lab focuses on the interface of physics and evolution in organismal systems, especially through the evolution of acoustic mechanisms and fast movements in arthropods.
