Published: 13 January 2020
...Lewis G. Halsey; Gil Iosilevskii ABSTRACT Displays of maximum swimming speeds are rare in the laboratory and the wild, limiting our understanding of the top-end athletic capacities of aquatic vertebrates. However, jumps out of the water – exhibited by a diversity of fish and cetaceans – might...

...Konstantin Nadein; Oliver Betz ABSTRACT The present study analyses the anatomy, mechanics and functional morphology of the jumping apparatus, the performance and the kinematics of the natural jump of flea beetles (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae: Galerucinae: Alticini). The kinematic parameters...

... jumping from a static start lose all of the energy imparted to compliant substrates and performance is reduced. Cuban tree frogs ( Osteopilus septentrionalis ) are particularly capable arboreal jumpers, and we hypothesized that these animals would be able to recover energy from perches of varying...

... control, the specialized femur–tibia (knee) joints of cricket ( Acheta domesticus ) hindlegs were studied during ballistic kicking, jumping and swimming and in non-ballistic walking. In this joint the tendons of the antagonistic flexor and the extensor muscles attach at different distances from the pivot...

...Rob S. James; Carlos A. Navas; Anthony Herrel SUMMARY Jumping is an important locomotor behaviour used by many animals. The power required to perform a jump is supplied by skeletal muscle. The mechanical properties of skeletal muscle, including the power it can produce, are determined by its...

Published: 15 March 2003
...Malcolm Burrows; Oliver Morris SUMMARY Bush crickets have long, thin hind legs but jump and kick rapidly. The mechanisms underlying these fast movements were analysed by correlating the activity of femoral muscles in a hind leg with the movements of the legs and body captured in high-speed images...

..., but they are not crucial to it. Introduction The locust jumps and kicks by the rapid extension of its metathoracic tibiae. This powerful movement requires a three-stage motor programme for each leg * To whom reprint requests should be addressed. Key words: locust, kick, jump, proprioceptive gate. 290 W. J.

... in this extensively dissected preparation was similar to that seen during a jump. Intracellular recordings from hindleg flexor and extensor motoneurones and from 13 identified interneurones revealed additional features of the motor programme for jumping and kicking and of the mechanism which triggers these events...
