Anthrozoology Geoff Hosey and Vicky Melfi. Across scales and environments, this book integrates the biomechanics of animal movement with the physiology of animal energetics and the neural control of locomotion.

The underlying physiological and biomechanical properties of muscles, skeletons biwwener nervous systems are linked to the mechanisms and control of movement. By comparing across species, common principles of design emerge. We also noticed that you have an account on Bookworld. Humanity in a Creative Universe Stuart A.
