The relationship between maximum jumping performance and hind limb morphology/physiology in domestic cats (Felis silvestris catus).

Abstract

A critical role of functional morphology is to demonstrate form-function relationships that can then be used by evolutionary biologists to infer the evolutionary history of the structure in question. Tests of theoretical expectations about the effects of many aspects of morphology/physiology on locomotor performance have had very mixed results. If systems… (More)
