Introductory remarks[edit]

Regarding "In addition to animal locomotion, most animals are motile (some move by passive locomotion)."

Why distinguish between locomotion and motility? Aren't they the same?

OGG Media File[edit]

Ogv file format for the media file near the start of this article is an outstanding choice. Ogv, after all, is a format that can be included as one of the formats for html-based video. Usually, when ogv is used in web video, it works best when mp4 is also used. That way, it works for almost all browsers, because almost all browsers work awesomely with mp4, so browsers will automatically select mp4 and ogv will not interfere. In this article ogv wisely is used, without accompanying mp4, which achieves the goal of making the media unplayable without a program not installed on most phones. I work with quite a few media formats all the time. After dozens of tests across windows and Mac computers, the ideal solution for playing ogv video I found was to produce video in mp4 and webm formats, then load those two formats. In this configuration, ogv works perfectly because it is not involved. An example of a video setup in this configuration is viewable at — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2601:2C1:C200:D480:7867:803E:431C:D4EE (talk) 08:40, 19 April 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]


I want to know the term sperm motility and its features. What is the normal range of active / live cells? How can one increase the level of active/live cells from the normal range ? what are the reasons that decreases the active/live cells in sperm motility.

i recommend that there be a unique atricle on treadmilling

scope of the article?[edit]

I'm a little bit confused with the scope of this page: the intro suggests that it is about all type of motility (from animals to cells) but the text mainly focus on cell migration. Should cell motility be just a subpart, with a link to the "cell migration" page? Saksihw (talk) 14:56, 10 September 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Genetic vs environmental determination of motility.[edit]

Is it really valid to include hydrogen cyanide and the resulting cell death as being an environmental determinate for motility? (talk) 17:55, 1 May 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
