The presence of "Srokalarva berthei", an adult body fossil, indicates that an eruciform, externally feeding caterpillar was actively locomotory (Kukalova-Peck, 1997) and probably had a phytophagous diet.
The method presented in this paper implies the calculation of angular and pitch deviations and is a fast way of assessing locomotory disorders.

sinensis of Sri Lankan black tea possesses anxiolytic activity (in terms of increased number of rears, locomotory activity and head dips in the hole-board, and increased food and milk intake in the neophobic tests) with a swift onset (within 1 h) of action.
The first efforts to release golden lion tamarins (Leontopithecus rosalia) in the wild were largely unsuccessful because the animals lacked basic locomotory skills and the ability to recognize food or predators (Wallace 2000).
Dives that appeared to serve a strictly locomotory purpose were much shorter (mean = 12 s) than dives apparently made for the sole purpose of foraging (mean = ills).
Accordingly, morphotypes of the Mermia ichnofacies are considered indicative of systematic grazing and locomotory behaviour, which correlates well with their occurrence in strata interpreted to have formed in quiet, low energy, permanently subaqueous settings (Buatois and Mangano 1995, 1998).

Behavioral activities were recorded with a camera (SONY SNC-CH180) and the number of locomotory events of each insect was recorded every 30 min both during the scotophase and photophase (12 h: 12 h L:D) at 27 [degrees]C for 30 d.
mimus observed in this study may be an effect of different energetic demands, because it is probable that the limited mobility of octopuses in captivity produced a lesser development of the mantle as a transport organ, along with better maintenance of protein levels in the arms, which in captivity become the main locomotory muscle and feeding tool.
