"Furry logics, the physics of animal life" book highlights our work on mosquitoes!

February 10, 2017

Thanks to Martin Durrani and Liz Kalaugher for highlighting some of the work I performed on mosquitoes during my PhD in Claudio Lazzari's lab at the University of Tours in France!

 

"The principles of physics lie behind many of the ways animals go about their daily lives. Scientists have discovered that the way cats and dogs lap up liquids can be explained by the laws of surface tension, how ants navigate is due to polarized light, and why pistol shrimps can generate enough force to destroy aquarium glass using their ”elbows!”Each of Furry Logic's six chapters tackles a separate branch of physics and, through more than 30 animal case studies, examines each creature's key features before describing the ways physics is at play in its life, how the connection between physics and animal behavior was discovered, and what remains to be found out. Science journalists Matin Durrani and Liz Kalaugher make the incredible interdisciplinary world of animals accessible to all, in an enthralling and entertaining read".
