Data from: Propulsion in hexapod locomotion: how do desert ants traverse slopes?

Toni Wöhrl, Lars Reinhardt & Reinhard Blickhan
The employment of an alternating tripod gait to traverse uneven terrains is a common characteristic shared among many Hexapoda. Because this could be one specific cause for their ecological success, we examined the alternating tripod gait of the desert ant Cataglyphis fortis together with their ground reaction forces and weight-specific leg impulses for level locomotion and on moderate (±30 deg) and steep (±60 deg) slopes in order to understand mechanical functions of individual legs during...
