ANIMAL LOCOMOTION BIEWENER PDF

Animal Locomotion. Andrew A. This book provides a clear foundation, based on physical biology and biomechanics, for understanding the underlying mechanisms by which animals have evolved to move in their physical environment. It integrates the biomechanics of animal movement with the physiology of animal energetics and the neural control of 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. Movement is a fundamental distinguishing feature of animal life, and a variety of extremely effective mechanical and physiological designs have evolved.

Animal Locomotion offers a fundamental understanding of animal movement through a broad comparative and integrative approach, including basic mathematics and physics, examination of new and enduring literature, consideration of classic and cutting-edge methods, and a strong emphasis on the core concepts that consistently ground the dizzying array of animal movements. Across scales and environments, this book integrates the biomechanics of animal movement with the physiology of animal energetics and the neural control of 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.

Andrew Biewener is the Charles P. 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. He has published over primary research papers, and trained 18 PhDs and 16 post-doctoral fellows. 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.

Patek received her A. She has received several honors, including a Guggenheim Fellowship, the George A. Fish, The Journal of Experimental Biology. Oxford University Press is a department of the University of Oxford. It furthers the University's objective of excellence in research, scholarship, and education by publishing worldwide.

CARDY SCALING AND RENORMALIZATION IN STATISTICAL PHYSICS PDF

This book provides a synthesis of the physical, physiological, evolutionary, and biomechanical principles that underlie animal locomotion. An understanding and full appreciation of animal locomotion requires the integration of these principles. Toward this end, we provide the necessary introductory foundation that will allow a more in-depth understanding of the physical biology and physiology of animal movement. 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 in
