Summary

According to traditional flight physics, bees should not be able to fly. But fly they do, with mastery of non– steady state aerodynamics and little concern about our limited understanding of their capabilities. Building on recent insights in biophysics research, Furry Logic: The Physics of Animal Life uses a refreshing combination of scientific precision and colloquial wit to show how animals use heat, forces, fluids, sound, electricity, and light to their advantage.
