This special thematic volume of Advances in Insect Physiology is the first book ever published with a focus on insect mechanics and control. Reasons for such a late interest in an otherwise important field are numerous and include the traditional disregard of physics by biologists, as Steve Vogel regrets in his book ‘Comparative Biomechanics’. An impediment to many biologists is a fear of equations and a limited understanding of the latest technological tools available within the large domains of biological physics, nanobiotechnology and chemical biology.
Although the topics covered are original and at the fore front of the interface between organismal biology, physics, engineering and applied mathematics, the spirit with which the selected chapters have been conceived remains true to the Advances in Insect Physiology series: deep insights gained by specialist researchers, presented in detailed, scholarly monograph form.
