Animal Locomotion : Andrew A. Biewener :

So, the content is the most important thing 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. Understanding the constraints of scale that underlie locomotor mechanisms is essential to appreciating how these mechanisms have evolved and how they operate.

These are then examined in the context of specific examples of how animals control the rhythmic patterns of limb and body movement that underlie locomotor function and stability.

Oxford Animal Biology Series Paperback: 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. This book provides a synthesis of the physical, physiological, evolutionary, and biomechanical principles that underlie animal locomotion.


The author also communicates a sense of the awe and fascination that comes from watching the grace, speed, and power of animals in motion. Amazon Advertising Find, attract, and engage customers. Consequently, an integrative approach to organismal function that spans multiple levels of biological organization provides a strong understanding of animal locomotion.

The locomotioh 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 addition to discussing the locomotor mechanisms of complex animals, the locomotor movement of single cells is also covered. The underlying physiological and biomechanical properties of muscles, skeletons and nervous systems are linked to the mechanisms and control of movement.

Biewener Professor Andrew A. Since an animal’s size is equally critical to its functional design, the effects of scale on locomotor bieweneer and mechanics are also discussed. Principles of Animal Locomotion Paperback. Chapter 9 Evolution of Locomotion.
