...Maximilian Schmitt; Thies H. Büscher; Stanislav N. Gorb; Hamed Rajabi ABSTRACT During the lifespan of the stick insect Carausius morosus , their long and narrow tibiae experience substantial compressive loads. The mechanical load on the tibiae increases as the weight of the insect rises...

... is illustrated to measure the Young's modulus of the outermost layer of the arolium, i.e. of the epicuticle, of the stick insect Carausius morosus . As a result of the epicuticle being supported by upright fibres, tensile tests allow the determination of the Young's modulus of the epicuticle with hardly...

...Philipp Bußhardt; Stanislav N. Gorb; Harald Wolf SUMMARY The activity of the middle part of the claw retractor muscle was examined in two species of stick insects ( Carausius morosus and Cuniculina impigra ). We performed electromyographic recordings while the animals were standing on a smooth...

... ). In the search for a possible insect hyperglycaemic factor, early attempts were made in the stick insect Carausius morosus (Sinety 1901) to identify a putative CHH-like molecule. Strong evidence for a close similarity between this first insect CHH-like peptide (still uncharacterised) and the CHH of the crab...

... a behavioural transition do so at the same rate. The present study tests this assumption by analysing the sequence of kinematic events during turning of the stick insect Carausius morosus , and by measuring how the time courses of the changing parameters differ between legs. Turning was triggered reliably...

Generally coupling strength of the underlying mechanisms has been considered constant rather than context-dependent. The present study analyses stepping patterns of the stick insect Carausius morosus during...

... Carausius morosus A fundamental goal of ethological studies is to understand how complex behaviour is controlled. This goal can be achieved by breaking down the continuous flow of activity into single actions that can easily be identified and counted. For investigating the control of adaptive...
