The application of artificial loads to mammals and birds has been used to provide insight into the mechanics and energetic cost of terrestrial locomotion. However, only two species of bird have previously been used in loading experiments, the curs...

We tested a general model predicting the effect of body temperature (T-b) on the aerobic capacity, metabolic cost, and endurance of sustained, terrestrial locomotion. In the ghost crab, Ocypode quadrata, T-b was a function of ambient temperature (...

The thermal dependencies of sustainable locomotion and aerobic energetics were determined in the Gila monster, a lizard of relatively low thermal preference. Maximal aerobic speed (MAS) is 0.70 km/h at C and 1.03 km/h at C (Q...

Swartz, SM., 1989: Pendular mechanics and the kinematics and energetics of brachiating locomotion. Because brachiating locomotion is characterized by a pattern of swinging movements, brachiation has often been analogized to pendular motion, and aspects of the mechanics of pendular systems have been used to provide insight into both energetic an...

The lateral undulatory, sidewinding and concertina modes of limbless terrestrial locomotion were analyzed from cinematographic films of five species of snakes and one amphisbaenian crawling on a variety of substrates. For single points on each ani...

Taylor, C.R.; Heglund, N.C., 1982: Energetics and mechanics of terrestrial locomotion. This review addresses a simple question: How do muscles use the energy they consume during terrestrial locomotion? Using a comparative approach, it was found that the mass-specific rate of metabolic energy consumption changes by more than ten-fold...

Most birds use at least two modes of locomotion: flying and walking (terrestrial locomotion). Whereas the wings and tail are used for flying, the legs are mainly used for walking. The role of other body segments remains, however, poorly understood...
