... extended the model to also work with deceleration, and revised the predictive equation to enable it to be applied to much higher levels of speed change. Shuttle running at different distances (from 5+5 to 20+20 m) was then investigated using the novel approach and software, and the predictions in terms...

...S. M. Cox; Gary B. Gillis ABSTRACT Coordinated landing in a variety of animals involves the re-positioning of limbs prior to impact to safely decelerate the body. However, limb kinematics strategies for landing vary considerably among species. For example, human legs are increasingly flexed before...

... this, little is known regarding the relationships between locomotor movements and prey capture. To gain insights into how fishes move during prey capture and the mechanisms underlying deceleration during prey capture, I measured the fin and body movements of largemouth bass, Micropterus salmoides...

..., because most fish protract these structures as they decelerate. However, the kinematics and modulation of velocity during starting and stopping are poorly understood for most species of fish as well as most species of animals. Thus,for bluegill sunfish Lepomis macrochirus with complete and partially...
