Summary
"In this program, George Lauder, of Harvard University, and Terri Williams, of the University of California, Santa Cruz, investigate the anatomical and physiological challenges faced by bluegill sunfish, bottlenose dolphins, sharks, salmon, and sperm whales to reduce drag and control buoyancy. Information on the optimal body shapes for reef-dwellers and open-ocean swimmers, the locomotive properties of fin and tail propulsion, the hydrodynamic qualities of marine and animal skin, the energy conservation advantages of slipstreaming and porpoising, aerobic and anaerobic muscle tissue, and the biomechanics of diving is also provided."--Container
