You can find this item in: Energy costs of locomotion ; She has received several honors, including a Guggenheim Fellowship, the George A. Biewener’s laboratory focuses on the biomechanics and neuromuscular control of terrestrial and aerial locomotion of vertebrate animals, with relevance to biorobotics and biomedical engineering. By comparing across species, common principles of design emerge. Authors Affiliations are at time of print publication.

Goodreads is the world’s largest site for readers with over 50 million reviews. This second edition has been thoroughly revised, incorporating new content on non-vertebrate bieeener 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. Chapter 9 Evolution of Locomotion. 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.
At the same time, the book articulates the captivating grace, speed, and power of animal movement.

Such comparisons also highlight how certain organisms may differ and point to wnimal that have evolved for movement in diverse environments. Across scales and environments, this book integrates the biewner of animal movement with the physiology of animal energetics and the neural control of locomotion.
