... ( Rattus norvegicus ) as they moved on horizontal poles of different diameters. The data were compared with data pertaining to terrestrial locomotion. We investigated three-dimensional kinematics and dynamics using biplanar cineradiography with simultaneous substrate reaction force (SRF) measurements...

...Angela R. V. Rivera; Richard W. Blob SUMMARY Turtles use their limbs during both aquatic and terrestrial locomotion, but water and land impose dramatically different physical requirements. How must musculoskeletal function be adjusted to produce locomotion through such physically disparate habitats...

...Andrew R. Lammers; Audrone R. Biknevicius SUMMARY Effects of substrate diameter on locomotor biodynamics were studied in the gray short-tailed opossum ( Monodelphis domestica ). Two horizontal substrates were used: a flat `terrestrial' trackway with a force platform integrated into the surface...

... a unifying general principle and extended from marine to terrestrial ectotherms. By contrast, in insects the upper and lower limits are decoupled, suggesting that the oxygen limitation hypothesis might not be as general as proposed. However, no direct tests of this hypothesis or its predictions have been...

For C. calyptratus , the main effects of locomotor surface were nearly three times more widespread than those of incline...

It has recently been suggested that terrestrial animals may conserve metabolic energy during locomotion by minimizing limb extensor muscle strain during stance, when the muscle is active, facilitating more economical force...
