anial Contents Relatd to Animal Locomotion. Classical, Early, and Medieval Plays and Playwrights: 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 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.
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. Skeletons Jan Zalasiewicz and Mark Williams. Chapter 5 Movement in Water.

The anomal physiological and biomechanical properties of muscles, skeletons and nervous systems are linked to the mechanisms and control of movement.
In so doing, we hope that this book will illuminate the fundamentals ainmal breadth of these systems, while inspiring our readers to look more deeply into the scientific literature and investigate new features of animal movement. Chapter 4 Movement on Land.
They also must navigate similar physical properties of their environment. Chapter 7 Jumping Climbing and Suspensory Locomotion. Patek received her A.

One of the most amazing aspects of biology is the biewened spatial and temporal scale over which organisms and biological processes operate. This book provides a synthesis of the physical, physiological, evolutionary, and biomechanical principles that underlie animal locomotion.
