Animal Locomotion – Oxford Scholarship

Animal Locomotion Andrew Biewener and Sheila Patek Abstract This book provides a synthesis of the physical, physiological, evolutionary, and biomechanical principles that underlie animal locomotion.

Chapter 4 Movement on Land. Patek’s lab focuses on the interface of physics and evolution in organismal systems, especially through bieewener evolution of acoustic mechanisms and fast movements in arthropods. Andrew BiewenerSheila Patek.


Arrives in days after despatch for most Australian capitals. Understanding the constraints of scale that underlie locomotor mechanisms is essential to appreciating how these mechanisms have evolved and how they operate. IB Biology Study Guide: One of the most amazing aspects of biology is the enormous spatial and temporal scale over which organisms and biological processes operate.

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.

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.

Synopsis Product Details Shipping Animals have evolved remarkable biomechanical and physiological systems that enable their rich repertoire of motion. Biewener Limited preview – Patek bieewener her A. We also noticed that you have previously shopped at Bookworld.


Chapter 4 Movement on Land. 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 locomotikn governed by natural selection, it is also important that we ask how and why these systems have evolved.
