Biomechanical Strategies for Locomotion in Soft-bodied Animals.Lin, Huai-Ti.
Abstract: Soft-bodied animals have relatively few mechanical constraints on movements. This freedom is expected to impose a great challenge to muscle force transmission and body coordination. I have used the caterpillar as a model system to explore the role of soft mechanics in the control of locomotion. Caterpillars are extremely successful herbivores that roam on complex branched structures. The... read more
