... is able to contact the 2.9 mm diameter tube with the arolium and two euplantulae ( Fig. 4 C). On curved substrates, the increasing attachment performance can be caused by generation of active adduction forces. When climbing on thin rods, compared with their own body size, animals can utilize clamping...

... is illustrated to measure the Young's modulus of the outermost layer of the arolium, i.e. of the epicuticle, of the stick insect Carausius morosus . As a result of the epicuticle being supported by upright fibres, tensile tests allow the determination of the Young's modulus of the epicuticle with hardly...

.... In accordance with this, some ground-living ponerine and leptanilline ant species lack an adhesive arolium ( Freeland et al., 1982 ). Our results show that attachment capacity differs considerably among ant species. Table 1 compares our results with other known records of insect attachment to smooth...
