    This book provides a synthesis of the physical, physiological, evolutionary, and biomechanical principles that underlie animal locomotion. An understanding and full appreciation of animal locomotion requires the integration of these principles. Toward this end, we provide the necessary introductory foundation that will allow a more in-depth understanding of the physical biology and physiology. Focusing on general principles but extensively discussing a wide variety of individual cases, this is a superb synthesis of current knowledge about animal locomotion. It will be enormously useful to advanced undergraduates, graduate students, and a range of Price: $

Alexander is well known for his concise writing, exemplified in a number of high-quality books and myriad journal articles produced during an impressive career. In retirement, he continues this productivity with Principles of Animal Locomotion, reviewing our knowledge of animal locomotion and biomechanics. This book comes at a time when there.

    Movement of Animals (or On the Motion of Animals; Greek Περὶ ζῴων κινήσεως; Latin De Motu Animalium) is one of Aristotle's major texts on sets out the general principles of animal locomotion. A book dealing particularly with human locomotion and posture, deriving principles from the movement of snakes. Wainwright makes a case for ambidexterity and calls "the excessive use of one hand" "the cause of a general deformity among civilized men."Seller Rating: % positive.

This book provides a clear foundation, based on physical biology and biomechanics, for understanding the underlying mechanisms by which animals have evolved to move in their physical environment. It integrates the biomechanics of animal movement with the physiology of animal energetics and the neural control of locomotion.

The physical principles of swimming and flying in animals are intriguingly different from those of ships and airplanes.

The study of animal locomotion therefore holds a special place not only at the frontiers of pure fluid dynamics research, but also in the applied field of biomimetics, which aims to emulate salient aspects of the performance and function of living organisms.

This book introduces energetics and optimality as basic principles. It tackles each of the major modes by which animals move on land, in water, and through air. It explains the mechanisms involved and the physical and biological forces shaping those mechanisms.

Get this from a library. Principles of animal locomotion. [R McNeill Alexander] -- This text provides an up-to-date overview of how animals run, walk, jump, crawl, swim, soar, hover, and fly. It covers all animals that power their movements with muscle, excluding only the tiny.

In this case, the various modes of how animals move are explained using words, pictures, and equations. There are many books about how birds fly, or how fish swim, or how felines run, but this book gives a good overview of all these modes of locomotion and more.

It covers the mechanics, kinetics, and thermodynamics of the different kinds of motion/5.physiological laws that govern all manners of animal locomotion. Supplemented with more detailed articles about partic-ular aspects of primate locomotor behavior, this book constitutes a robust framework for a course in primate biomechanics.

Chapter 1 sets the stage with a considera-tion of common principles associated with movement.This book provides a synthesis of the physical, physiological, evolutionary, and biomechanical principles that underlie animal locomotion.
