The Behavioral Ecology of Intermittent Locomotion

  title={The Behavioral Ecology of Intermittent Locomotion},
  author={Donald L. Kramer and Robert L. McLaughlin},
SYNOPSIS. Most physiological and ecological approaches to animal locomotion are based on steady state assumptions, yet movements of many animals are interspersed with pauses lasting from milliseconds to minutes. Thus, pauses, along with changes in the duration and speed of moves, form part of a dynamic system of intermittent locomotion by which animals adjust their locomotor behavior to changing circumstances. Intermittent locomotion occurs in a wide array of organisms from protozoans to… CONTINUE READING
