This special issue consists of reviewed articles contributed by lecture presenters of the IUTAM Symposium ``From Mechanical to Biological Systems: an Integrated Approach'' held at the Udmurt State University, Izhevsk, Russia, from June 5 to June 10, 2012. The main goal of the Symposium was to promote an integrated approach to the understanding of the dynamical structures of mechanical artefacts, on the one hand, and living bodies, on the other hand. Areas of emphasis included the dynamics of ground-moving self-propelling mechanisms, aquatic locomotion, mechanical paradoxes and artefacts. A significant part of the presentations was devoted to dynamical systems which are of practical interest for robotics, especially for the area of mobile robots, including biologically inspired mobile robots.
