Soft foam robot with caterpillar-inspired gait regimes for terrestrial locomotion
Caterpillars are the soft bodied larvae of lepidopteran insects. They have evolved to occupy an extremely diverse range of natural environments and to locomote in complex three-dimensional structuresExpand

Long-axis twisting during locomotion of elongate fishes
ABSTRACT Fish live in a complex world and must actively adapt their swimming behavior to a range of environments. Most studies of swimming kinematics focus on two-dimensional properties related toExpand

Meral-Spot Reflectance Signals Weapon Performance in the Mantis Shrimp Neogonodactylus oerstedii (Stomatopoda)
During animal contests over resources, opponents often signal their fighting ability in an attempt to avoid escalating to physical attack. A reliable signal is beneficial to receivers because itExpand

Three-dimensional movements of the pectoral fin during yaw turns in the Pacific spiny dogfish, Squalus suckleyi
ABSTRACT Fish pectoral fins move in complex ways, acting as control surfaces to affect force balance during swimming and maneuvering. Though objectively less dynamic than their actinopterygianExpand

More than Skin Deep: Crawling Soft Robots with Functional Skin
Animals moving in natural environments need to adapt locomotion strategies to navigate unpredictable and constantly changing conditions. This is accomplished through alterations in descending motorExpand
Swimming and defence: competing needs across ontogeny in armoured fishes (Agonidae)
Biological armours are potent model systems for understanding the complex series of competing demands on protective exoskeletons; after all, armoured organisms are the product of millions of years ofExpand
Correction: Long-axis twisting during locomotion of elongate fishes
There was an error published in J. Exp. Biol. 220 , [3632-3640][1]. The axes on two of the plots in [Fig. 9][2] were incorrect. The corrected figure is below. ![Figure][3] The authors apologiseExpand
