    Department of Musculoskeletal Biology II, University of Liverpool, Liverpool, UK
    Biol Lett 8:46-9. 2012
    ..The gibbons' unusual morphology facilitates a division of labour among the hind limbs, forelimbs and trunk, resulting in modest power requirements compared with more specialized leapers...

    Anthony J Channon
    School of Biomedical Sciences, University of Liverpool, Liverpool, UK
    J Exp Biol 214:687-96. 2011
    ..Neither leap type appeared to usefully recover energy from the pole to increase leap performance, but the gibbons demonstrated an ability to best adapt their leap biomechanics to counter the negative effects of the compliant pole...
