- Adaptive changes in trabecular architecture in relation to functional strain patterns and disuseA A Biewener
Department of Organismal Biology and Anatomy, University of Chicago, IL 60637, USA
Bone 19:1-8. 1996..Together, these results suggest that once trabecular alignment is established during growth (along the directions of principal strain during locomotion), it is not altered when functional strains are removed...
- Kangaroo rat locomotion: design for elastic energy storage or acceleration?A A Biewener
Department of Anatomy, University of Chicago, IL 60637
J Exp Biol 140:243-55. 1988..Middle ear morphology and behavioural observations of kangaroo rats jumping vertically to avoid predation by owls and rattlesnakes support this view...
- Evaluation of a bone's in vivo 24-hour loading history for physical exercise compared with background loadingD D Konieczynski
Department of Organismal Biology and Anatomy, University of Chicago, Illinois, USA

- In vivo muscle force-length behavior during steady-speed hopping in tammar wallabiesA A Biewener
Department of Organismal Biology and Anatomy, The University of Chicago, Chicago, IL 60637, USA
J Exp Biol 201:1681-94. 1998..This finding supports the view that tendon elastic saving of energy is an important mechanism by which this species is able to hop at faster speeds with little or no increase in metabolic energy expenditure...
