AUTHOR

SUMMARY

This short, non-mathematical discussion of how the physical size of an animal affects its physiological functions can be read profitably by both students and professional scientists. Elegantly written, the book illuminates those physical laws controlling rates of diffusion and heat transfer, transfer of force and momentum, the strength of structures, the dynamics of locomotion, and so on. It shows how these laws have profound implications for animals of widely different size and scale and why the size of living things is of such fundamental importance.Schmidt-Nielsen, Knut is the author of 'Scaling Why Is Animal Size So Important?', published 1984 under ISBN 9780521319874 and ISBN 0521319870.
