...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...
