    ..g., a thicker inferior cortex is required to reinforce the strongly curved inferior surface). As in prior studies of cross-sectional geometry of long bones, we found slightly positive allometry of cortical dimensions with body mass...

    ..Larger-bodied leapers therefore have less muscle force available per unit body weight to be propelled than their smaller-bodied counterparts...

    ..The lack of buttressing in the loaded plane and the somewhat counterintuitive bending direction recommend caution with regard to conventional interpretations of long bone cross-sectional geometry...

    ..Forces associated with other locomotor activities do not appear to follow this pattern. The very high forces found in strepsirhine leapers do not seem to be matched by bone robusticity beyond that documented for quadrupedal species...
