Constructional Morphology and Evolution

Author: Norbert Schmidt-Kittler; Klaus Vogel
Publisher: Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 1991.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
Constructional morphology explains features of organisms from a constructional and functional point of view. By means of physical analysis it explains the operational aspects of organic structures - how they can perform the activities organisms are expected to fulfil in order to survive in their environment. Constructional morphology also explains options and constraints during the evolution determined by internal  Read more...
