Sorry for my delay in posting this slightly edited and "annotated" list of
the most recently published articles with title words Biomechanics or
Locomotion. This post includes articles in plant, orthopedic, posture,
gait, neural and sport biomechanics.

I am in the process of switching to a new data base that is more
comprehensive (includes keywords as well as title word searches), but which
is not as up to date as my present data base. I am waiting for the new one
to catch up.

Happy furculum fracturing to my fellow Americans.
