The role of cross-sectional geometry, curvature and limb posture in maintaining equal safety factors: A computed tomography studyThe limb bones of an elephant are considered to experience similar peak locomotory stresses as a shrew. "Safety factors" are maintained across the entire range of body masses through a combination of robusticity of long bones, postural variation, and modification of gait. The relative contributions of these variables remain uncertain....
