Locomotion and the movement are the two important terms used for motion. But they both differ from each other.
Locomotion refers to the ability of an organism to move from one place to another, which includes moving, crawling, walking, running, swimming, jumping, propelling, flying, etc. Locomotion is voluntary in nature and mainly refers to the entire organism.
Movement is also an important feature of living organisms. It can be both voluntary and involuntary. The movement refers only to a particular cell, tissue or organs. There are three main types of movements, which are exhibited by the different cells of the living organisms and it include:
- Ciliary Movement
- Amoeboid Movement
- Muscular Movement
