.../ Summary: High-speed video analysis of jumping in a species of scorpion fly shows that it uses the middle and hind legs for propulsion. Accompanying movements of the wings contribute little to take-off. Locomotion Flying High-speed imaging Escape movements To jump from the ground...

.... Jumping Flying Kinematics High-speed imaging Escape movements Biomechanics Three different strategies are used by a wide diversity of insects to launch a take-off from the ground and into the air. First, rapid movements of the legs propel jumping to achieve take-off, without any contribution...

... imaging Locomotion Flying Escape movements The need for a rapid means of escaping from predators appears to have been a strong force driving the evolution of jumping in many orders of insects. The diversity of habitats that insects have come to occupy, however, has meant that other pressures...

... Kinematics Flying Escape movements Most insects that jump are propelled by a single pair of legs that move together rapidly and powerfully. There are exceptions, however, such as the springtails (Collembola), which use the fast extension of an abdominal appendage ( Brackenbury and Hunt, 1993...
