**Exploring the Biofluiddynamics of Swimming and Flight**

by David Lentink

**Publisher**: Wageningen University 2008**ISBN-13**: 9789085049715**Number of pages**: 192

**Description**:

Many organisms must move through water or air in order to survive and reproduce. It is useful to analyze fluid motion as a collection of vortices, yet the dynamics are complex: vortices interact with the moving organism, interact with each other, and evolve independently in time.
