The study of the mechanical design of living organisms is one of the most rapidly expanding areas of biological research. Greater understanding of the ways in which an animal's body responds to mechanical stress has resulted in significant advances in the fields of zoology, physiology, andbiomedical engineering. This volume is the first to provide a compilation of experimental protocols for researchers in these areas.The emphasis of the book is on evaluating the performance of structures within the muscoloskeletal and circulatory systems in the context of their physical activities.
A. A. Biewener is at University of Chicago.

Editorial Reviews

`both timely and welcome ... this new book fills an important niche: it is a compendium of practical information covering fluid and solid mechanics and related physiological areas ... it succeeds rather well at its appointed task of introducing researchers to the practical aspects of doingbiomechanics. I highly recommend this book as a starting point for anyone (especially graduate students) interested in adding biomechanical techniques to their research.'David E. Alexander, University of Kansas, Animal Behaviour 46, 1993
