Adhesion forces measured at the level of a terminal plate of the fly's seta.
Langer MG, Ruppersberg JP, Gorb S. Langer MG, et al. Proc Biol Sci. 2004 Nov 7;271(1554):2209-15. doi: 10.1098/rspb.2004.2850. Proc Biol Sci. 2004. PMID: 15539345 Free PMC article.
Our data provide the first direct evidence that, in addition to Van der Waals and Coulomb forces, attractive capillary forces, mediated by pad secretion, are a critical factor in the fly's attachment mechanism....

Diversity of functional microornamentation in slithering geckos Lialis (Pygopodidae).
Spinner M, Gorb SN, Westhoff G. Spinner M, et al. Proc Biol Sci. 2013 Oct 9;280(1772):20132160. doi: 10.1098/rspb.2013.2160. Print 2013 Dec 7. Proc Biol Sci. 2013. PMID: 24107533 Free PMC article.
Using scanning electron microscopy, we investigated the shed skins of two pygopodid lizards, Lialis jicari (Papua snake lizard) and Lialis burtonis (Burton's legless lizard), in order to show epidermal adaptations to limbless locomotion. ...

Ground reaction forces in vertically ascending beetles and corresponding activity of the claw retractor muscle on smooth and rough substrates.
Bußhardt P, Gorb SN. Bußhardt P, et al. J Comp Physiol A Neuroethol Sens Neural Behav Physiol. 2014 May;200(5):385-98. doi: 10.1007/s00359-014-0896-0. Epub 2014 Mar 19. J Comp Physiol A Neuroethol Sens Neural Behav Physiol. 2014. PMID: 24643622
Subdigital and subcaudal microornamentation in Chamaeleonidae--a comparative study.
Spinner M, Westhoff G, Gorb SN. Spinner M, et al. J Morphol. 2013 Jun;274(6):713-23. doi: 10.1002/jmor.20137. Epub 2013 Mar 18. J Morphol. 2013. PMID: 23504635
With these differences, the chameleon's unique microstructures on the zygodactylous feet and prehensile tail rather increase friction for arboreal locomotion than being a shear-induced adhesive system as setal pads of other lizards....

Two functional types of attachment pads on a single foot in the Namibia bush cricket Acanthoproctus diadematus (Orthoptera: Tettigoniidae).
Grohmann C, Henze MJ, Nørgaard T, Gorb SN. Grohmann C, et al. Proc Biol Sci. 2015 Jun 22;282(1809):20142976. doi: 10.1098/rspb.2014.2976. Proc Biol Sci. 2015. PMID: 26213740 Free PMC article.
Brochosomal coats turn leafhopper (Insecta, Hemiptera, Cicadellidae) integument to superhydrophobic state.
Rakitov R, Gorb SN. Rakitov R, et al. Proc Biol Sci. 2012 Dec 12;280(1752):20122391. doi: 10.1098/rspb.2012.2391. Print 2013 Feb 7. Proc Biol Sci. 2012. PMID: 23235705 Free PMC article.
The coats have been previously suggested to act as a water-repellent and anti-adhesive protective barrier against the insect's own exudates. ...

Underwater locomotion in a terrestrial beetle: combination of surface de-wetting and capillary forces.
Hosoda N, Gorb SN. Hosoda N, et al. Proc Biol Sci. 2012 Oct 22;279(1745):4236-42. doi: 10.1098/rspb.2012.1297. Epub 2012 Aug 8. Proc Biol Sci. 2012. PMID: 22874756 Free PMC article.
Additional capillary forces are generated by the pad's liquid bridges between the foot and the substrate. Inspired by this idea, we designed an artificial silicone polymer structure with underwater adhesive properties....
