... can perform locomotion on solid substrates in an aquatic environment. To address the biomechanics of locomotion on rigid substrates, we studied the ‘somersaulting’ locomotion in Hydra . We applied atomic force microscopy to measure the local mechanical properties of Hydra 's body column and identified...

... ( Coccinella septempunctata ) by the use of atomic force microscopy. Flattened droplets of the beetle had lower evaporation rates than hemispherical footprints of the fly. Within 1 h, the droplet volume reduced to 21% of the initial volume for the fly, and to 65% for the beetle, suggesting a larger fraction...

... atomic force microscopy (AFM) shows that a single setule can produce an adhesive force (F a ) of 38.12 nN perpendicular to a surface. Consequently, at a total F a of 2.38×10 –2 N and a mean body mass of 15.1 mg, a safety factor (SF; F a /F m , where F m is weight) of 160 is achieved. Tenacity (τ n ; F...
