Movements

Often we consider movement in connection with locomotion, i.e., an organism moving from place to place. It is a characteristic and fundamental property of animals. However, even animals that remain attached and never move about such as corals, sponges, etc. exhibit variety of movements. There are three basic mechanisms that animals use to achieve motion. The three basic mechanisms of movements are:

  • Amoeboid movement,
  • Ciliary movement, and
  • Muscular movement.
