Functional Morphology, Biomechanics and Biomimetics
Rajabi, Hamed (editor)
Gorb, Stanislav N. (editor)
Wu, Jianing (editor)
In this thematic series, engineers and scientists come together to address two interesting interdisciplinary questions in functional morphology and biomechanics: How do the structure and material determine the function of insect body parts? How can insects inspire engineering innovations?
