About this book

&i;`The authors of Mechanical Design in Organisms are to be complimented for their outstanding work. They proivide a book with breadth and depth and one which brings together important research in plant and animal biomechanics. It was an enjoyable read and I would highly recommend it.'&o;David L Butler, Journal of Biomechanics

One of the most useful and important books I have reviewed. The designer of a bridge needs to know the strength of his steel or concrete and he needs to know how forces are transmitted through structures... A biologist studying an animal or plant structure cannot understand it fully without the same sort of knowledge. The Quarterly Review of Biology
