Principles of Animal Locomotion
R. McNeill Alexander

Book Description | Table of Contents
Chapter 1 [HTML] or [PDF format]

ADDITIONAL ENDORSEMENTS:

"One of the major gaps in the literature of biomechanics is a general textbook on animal locomotion, and it is difficult to imagine anyone better suited to write one than Alexander. He is a leading researcher, and his books always convey the interest and excitement of his field to a broad audience. I look forward to using this book in my own classes."--Robert Dudley, University of California, Berkeley

"This is unique, important, and useful synthesis that brings together an analysis of locomotion on land, in water, and in the air. There is no other contemporary book on animal locomotion that is as broad in scope, and I expect that it will become a classic in the field."--Thomas J. Roberts, Oregon State University
