Comparative Biomechanics
Lifes Physical World, Second Edition
Steven Vogel


Comparative Biomechanics is the first and only textbook that takes a comprehensive look at the mechanical aspects of lifecovering animals and plants, structure and movement, and solids and fluids. An ideal entry point into the ways living creatures interact with their immediate physical world, this revised and updated edition examines how the forms and activities of animals and plants reflect the materials available to nature, considers rules for fluid flow and structural design, and explores how organisms contend with environmental forces. This book is useful for physical scientists and engineers seeking a guide to state-of-the-art biomechanics. For a wider audience, the textbook establishes the basic biological context for applied areasincluding ergonomics, orthopedics, mechanical prosthetics, kinesiology, sports medicine, and biomimeticsand provides materials for exhibit designers at science museums.

Problem sets at the ends of chapters
Appendices cover basic background information
Updated and expanded documentation and materials
Revised figures and text
Increased coverage of friction, viscoelastic materials, surface tension, diverse modes of locomotion, and biomimetics

Steven Vogel is James B. Duke Professor Emeritus of Biology at Duke University. His numerous books include Glimpses of Creatures in Their Physical Worlds (Princeton) and Cats Paws and Catapults (Norton).

Paperback, May 2013
Joseph Auner's new text, Music in the Twentieth and Twenty-First Centuries, offers a concise introduction to the music and culture of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.
