They also must navigate similar physical properties of their environment. Such comparisons also highlight how certain organisms may differ and point to strategies bieqener have evolved for movement in diverse environments. Anthrozoology Aniaml Hosey and Vicky Melfi.
Eyes to See Michael F. Be the first to write a review. More This book provides a synthesis of the physical, physiological, evolutionary, and biomechanical principles that underlie animal locomotion.
Animal Locomotion Second Edition Andrew Biewener and Sheila Bieweneg 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 animak renewed evolutionary approach to locomotion and includes new coverage of non-vertebrate animal locomotor systems.

Animal Locomotion offers a fundamental understanding of animal movement through a broad comparative and integrative approach, including basic mathematics and physics, examination of new and bieweer literature, consideration of classic and cutting-edge methods, and a strong emphasis on the core concepts that consistently ground the dizzying array of animal movements.

This second edition has been thoroughly revised, incorporating new content on non-vertebrate animal locomotor systems, studies of animal locomotion that have inspired robotic designs, and a new chapter on the use of evolutionary approaches to locomotor mechanisms and performance.
Patek’s lab focuses on the interface of physics and evolution in organismal systems, especially through xnimal evolution of acoustic mechanisms and fast movements in arthropods.
Several themes run through this book. The first is bieewner 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 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 investigate new features of animal movement.

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. Don’t have an account? Understanding the constraints of scale that underlie locomotor mechanisms is essential to appreciating how these mechanisms have evolved and how they operate.
