9.5 Ex Vivo Locomotion

In this final Section of Chapter 9, our attention turns to locomotion across, through, and around the external surfaces of the human body. The most important of such surfaces are the teeth (Section 9.5.1) and the skin (Section 9.5.2). Another important consideration is aerial locomotion near the human body (Section 9.5.3). These discussions are necessarily incomplete; more comprehensive treatments are beyond the scope of this introductory text.
