Bertram, Albrecht

Understanding Mammalian Locomotion

Concepts and Applications

€ 170.20

Understanding Mammalian Locomotion will formally introduce the emerging perspective of collision dynamics in mammalian terrestrial locomotion and explain how it influences the interpretation of form and functional capabilities.
