EVSC 3060 - Biomechanics of Organisms

This course explores interactions between biology and the fluid within which terrestrial organisms (air) and aquatic organisms (water) function. Topics covered include locomotion, heat exchange, diffusion and mass exchange, bio-acoustics, and bio-optics in the two different fluids, as well as living at the interface between air and water. For each topic, basic physical principles and current research will be covered. Prerequisite: MATH 1210, MATH 1220, PHYS 1610 or instructor permission.
