Animal Locomotion by Biewener, Andrew a

In so doing, we hope that animap book will illuminate the fundamentals and breadth of these systems, while inspiring our readers to look more deeply into the scientific literature and in 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.

Toward this end, we provide the necessary introductory foundation that will allow a more viewener understanding of the physical biology and physiology of animal movement. Subscriber Login Email Address.
