Zug) The Marine Toad, Bufo Marinus: A Natural History Resumé of Native Populations, Smithsonian Institution Press (Washington, DC), Jumping or leaping is a form of locomotion or movement in which an organism or non-living (e.g., robotic) mechanical system propels itself through the air along a ballistic g can be distinguished from running, galloping and other gaits where the entire body is temporarily airborne, by the relatively long duration of the aerial phase and high angle of initial launch.

Protozoan - Protozoan - Characteristics of locomotion: Protozoans exhibit diverse modes of locomotion across the various groups, but the modes of locomotion can be broadly divided into flagellar, ciliary, and amoeboid movement. Only the ciliates among the three major motility groups of protozoans, however, represent a truly monophyletic group (or single evolutionary line).

Maximal performance is an essential metric for understanding many aspects of an organism's biology, but it can be difficult to determine because a measured maximum may reflect only a peak level of effort, not a physiological limit.
