The locomotor kinematics of Asian and African elephants: changes with speed and size
SUMMARY For centuries, elephant locomotion has been a contentious and confusing challenge for locomotion scientists to understand, not only because of technical difficulties but also because elephantExpand

Regionally high rates of hybridization and introgression in German wildcat populations (Felis silvestris, Carnivora, Felidae)
While the western populations of the wildcat (Felis silvestris silvestris) in Germany come into contact with wildcats in France and Switzerland, the eastern distribution area is geographicallyExpand

Morphological Integration in Mammalian Limb Proportions: Dissociation between Function and Development
During mammalian evolution, fore- and hindlimbs underwent a fundamental reorganization in the transformation from the sprawled to the parasagittal condition. This caused a dissociation between serialExpand

Arboreal locomotion in rats – the challenge of maintaining stability
SUMMARY Arboreal locomotion has mainly been looked at to date in the context of investigations into the specialization of primates and other ‘arboreally adapted’ animals. The feat of moving onExpand

Basic limb kinematics of small therian mammals.
A comparative study of quantitative kinematic data of fore- and hindlimb movements of eight different mammalian species leads to the recognition of basic principles in the locomotion of smallExpand

Gait parameter adjustments of cotton-top tamarins (Saguinus oedipus, Callitrichidae) to locomotion on inclined arboreal substrates.
The influence of different substrate inclinations on gaits and metric gait parameters (relative forelimb and hind limb protraction, relative forelimb, and hind limb retraction, stride length, stance,Expand

Evolution of chameleon locomotion, or how to become arboreal as a reptile.
High-speed, biplanar X-ray motion analysis, X-ray reconstruction of moving morphology (XROMM) and morphological studies have led to the identification of those traits which are considered to beExpand

Crouched posture and high fulcrum, a principle in the locomotion of small mammals: The example of the rock hyrax (Procavia capensis) (Mammalia: Hyracoidea)
Abstract The cineradiographic study of the locomotion of the rock hyrax ( Procavia capensis ) and the functional interpretation of its locomotory system, reveals that the main action of proximalExpand

The tri-segmented limbs of therian mammals: kinematics, dynamics, and self-stabilization--a review.
The evolution of therian mammals is to a large degree marked by changes in their motion systems. One of the decisive transitions has been from the sprawled, bi-segmented to the parasagittal,Expand
