J Exp Biol (2020) 223 (2): jeb217133.
Published: 22 January 2020
...Felipe Tapia; Jesús Olivares; Oliver Schmachtenberg ABSTRACT Spiders are a large group of arthropods and nearly omnipresent in warm and temperate climates. They rely on tactile and visual information to hunt and breed, but compared with their mechanical senses, little is known about their visual...

...R. J. Full; A. Yamauchi; D. L. Jindrich ABSTRACT Integrating studies of mechanics, neural control and isolated muscle function are possible using arthropod legs. To evaluate leg performance, we measured the ground reaction forces generated by individual legs of the six-legged cockroach Blaberus...

...Robert J. Full ABSTRACT Arthropods possess spectacular diversity in locomotor design. Yet it is not clear what unique constraints, if any, variation in design imposes on mechanics, metabolic energy cost or endurance during terrestrial locomotion. In the present study metabolic energy cost...
