... (TBT) were related to ontogenetic changes in limb kinematics, ground reaction forces, and ontogenetic scaling patterns of the cross-sectional bone geometry, curvature and mineral ash content over a 4.4-fold increase in leg length and 65-fold increase in mass. Although the distribution of principal...

... loading (e.g. Goodship, Lanyon & McFie, 1979 ; Lanyon & Bourn, 1979 ; Lanyon, 1981 ), selection for increased bone mass in the dog is not surprising. However, over a range of body mass the scaling of bone geometry does not account for the similar stresses that have been measured ( Alexander...
