"The publication of this book is nothing if not auspicious. In Solid Biomechanics, Ennos brings to bear his unusually wide experience, from early work on insect flight to extensive recent research on plants. This is a book that we very much need."--Steven Vogel, professor emeritus, Duke University "This accessible and clear book looks at how the structure and mechanical properties of tissues and organs of living organisms relate to their function. Discussing many kinds of tissues--plant, animal, and human-- Solid Biomechanicswill generate broad interest in the subject."--Rod Lakes, University of WisconsinRoland Ennos is the author of 'Solid Biomechanics', published 2011 under ISBN 9780691135502 and ISBN 0691135509.
