CAIRO BOOKS's Description
This book presents a physicists view of life. The primary life functions of
animals, such as eating, growing, reproducing and getting around all depend on
motion: Motion of materials through the body, motion of limbs and motion of the
entire body through water, air and on land. These activities are driven by
internal information stored in the genes or in the brain and by external
information transmitted by the senses. This book models these life functions
with the tools of physics. It will appeal to all scientists, from the
undergraduate level upwards, who are interested in the role played by physics
in the animal kingdom.
