By Dennis R. Carter,Gary S. Beaupré

The intimate dating among shape and serve as inherent within the layout of animals could be nowhere extra glaring than within the musculoskeletal procedure. within the bones, cartilage, tendons, ligaments, and muscle tissue of all vertebrates there's a sleek and effective actual order. This booklet is set how functionality determines shape. It addresses the position of mechanical components within the improvement, model, upkeep, growing older and service of skeletal tissues. The authors check with this method as mechanobiology and increase their subject matter inside of an evolutionary framework. They express how the conventional improvement of skeletal tissues is inspired by means of mechanical stimulation starting within the embryo and carrying on with all through existence into previous age. in addition they convey how degenerative problems akin to arthritis and osteoporosis are regulated through a similar mechanical tactics that impact improvement and progress. Skeletal functionality and shape bridges vital gaps between disciplines, supplying a standard floor for knowing, and should attract a large viewers of bioengineers, zoologists, anthropologists, palaeontologists and orthopaedists.
