Examples

  • True terrestriality requires an obligate physiological commitment to life on land.

    What is a terrestrial animal?

  • Anyway, this phylogenetic data indicates that the ancestors of ground hornbills were woodland or forest birds, and that the unusual behavioural characters of ground hornbills – the carnivory, the terrestriality, the striding gait (other hornbills hop when on the ground), the savannah habitat – are derived novelties.
