Published: 1 August 2012
...Natalie C. Holt; Graham N. Askew SUMMARY The metabolic cost of the negotiation of obstacles, and the influence that this has on route selection, are important determinants of an animal's locomotor behaviour. We determined the gross metabolic cost of locomotion on slopes of different gradients...

... and the biomechanical determinants of the metabolic cost of locomotion. This study re-explores how the net metabolic energy cost of running and walking (J kg –1 m –1 ) in humans compares to that of animals of similar mass using new allometric analyses of previously published data. Firstly, this study shows that the use...

...Herman Pontzer SUMMARY Notably absent from the existing literature is an explicit biomechanical model linking limb design to the energy cost of locomotion, COL. Here, I present a simple model that predicts the rate of force production necessary to support the body and swing the limb during walking...

...Thomas L. Daniel ABSTRACT The influence of unsteady (time varying) motion on the energetics of swimming was investigated with measurements and theoretical estimates of the specific cost of locomotion for two species of hydrozoan medusae: Gonionemus vertens L. Agassiz and Stomotoca atra L. Agassiz...
