... 10%, whereas the errors in the mass-specific power ( P / m ) can possibly reach 30%. Velocities of all breaches for each species for which the breaching angle exceeded 70 deg, and the mass-specific mechanical power deemed needed to achieve these, are plotted against body length in Fig. 1...

... contests and to hard–shelled prey while feeding. We compared the scaling of strike kinematics and energetics between feeding and contests in the mantis shrimp Neogonodactylus bredini . We filmed strikes with high-speed video, measured strike velocity and used a mathematical model to calculate strike energy...

... predict that an increasing number of obstacles will increase the frequency of pausing and decrease sprint velocity. Furthermore, bipedal running over multiple obstacles is predicted to maintain greater mean sprint velocity compared with quadrupedal running, thereby revealing a potential advantage of...

...Pauline Provini; Bret W. Tobalske; Kristen E. Crandell; Anick Abourachid SUMMARY Take-off mechanics are fundamental to the ecology and evolution of flying animals. Recent research has revealed that initial take-off velocity in birds is driven mostly by hindlimb forces. However, the contribution of...

...Peter G. Adamczyk; Arthur D. Kuo SUMMARY Simple dynamic walking models based on the inverted pendulum predict that the human body's center of mass (COM) moves along an arc during each step,with substantial work performed to redirect the COM velocity in the step-to-step transition between arcs. But...

We exposed individual whelks to turbulent odor plumes in free-stream velocities of 1.5,5, 10 or 15 cm s –1 , or with one of two obstructions placed upstream of the odor source in an intermediate flow of 5 cm s –1 . Measurements of velocity and stimulus properties confirmed...

The smallest birds, hummingbirds (Order Apodiformes), are unique in their ability to perform sustained hovering but have proportionally small hindlimbs that could hinder generation of high leg thrust. Understanding the take-off...
