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 bieener of nervous, skeletal, and animao components Adopts a renewed evolutionary approach to locomotion and includes new coverage of non-vertebrate animal locomotor systems.

You added your first item into your Library. 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.

Movement on land ; 4. Chapter 3 Energetics of Locomotion. 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.

Check out the top books of the year on our page Best Books of Classical, Early, and Medieval Prose and Writers: Classical, Early, and Medieval Poetry and Poets: Animals have evolved remarkable biomechanical and physiological systems that enable their rich repertoire of motion.


An understanding and full appreciation of aniaml locomotion requires the integration of these principles. Animal Locomotion Andrew A. Consequently, an integrative approach to organismal function that spans multiple levels of biological organization provides a strong understanding of animal locomotion.

The underlying physiological and biomechanical properties of muscles, skeletons and nervous systems are linked to the mechanisms and control of movement. Chapter 4 Movement on Land. A second is that size matters. They also must navigate similar physical properties of their environment. At the same time, the book articulates the captivating grace, speed, and power of animal movement.
