Movement and locomotion are collectively called the biomechanics, which is the science that brings Biology and mechanical engineering together. It is the liveliest and most fascinating branch and deals with the study of animal locomotion: how birds fly and fishes swim, how slugs crawl, how legged animal (and people) run, and much else besides. The bewildering variety of styles of movement used by creatures ranging in size from amoeba to whales presents innumerable challenges to biomechanicists.
