About this book

Ecology and Biomechanics: A Mechanical Approach to the Ecology of Animals and Plants highlights how biomechanics can provide insights into ecological and evolutionary questions. This book presents material on a range of subjects that combine approaches from various disciplines. Ideal as a reference for students and researchers, it includes both theoretical concepts and practical approaches. It covers research based on both plants and animals as well as the interaction between the two. It also illustrates the text with examples that emphasize distinct organism-environment relationships. It is ideal for readers in biomechanics, ecology, evolutionary biology, botany, zoology, and entomology.
