Ecology Book from C.H.I.P.S.

Ecology and Biomechanics
A Mechanical Approach
edited by Anthony Herrel

Ecology and Biomechanics offers a collection of state-of-the-art papers that ingeniously demonstrates how biomechanics can provide novel insights into long standing ecological and evolutionary questions.

Features:

  • Covers research based on plants and animals and interactions between the two, as well as between them and their environment
  • Examines both theoretical concepts and practical approaches
  • Presents detailed topical studies highlighting state-of the art methods and analyses used in the field of eco-biomechanics
  • Provides inspiration and suggestion for further inquiry via biomechanics
