... compliance. In spite of large deflections of the perches and consequent substantial energy absorption, frogs were able to regain some of the energy lost to the perch during the recoil. Takeoff velocity was robust to changes in compliance, but was lower than when jumping from flat surfaces. This highlights...

... musky. Large body depth also damps inertial recoil arising from the side force generated largely by the tail. Inertial energy losses appear to be more important contributors than friction to mechanical power requirements. Lighthill showed that energy wastage in recoil is large when ζ is large...
