Bioengineering is the department of biology which applies the tools of engineering and physics to the learn of organic phenomena, and the vocabulary of know-how to explain them. relatively with recognize to the mechanics of stream and different physiological tactics, some great benefits of this technique are visible. yet different fields of analysis additionally demonstrate new insights whilst biotechnical examine tools are utilized, and this type of is the comparative morphology of organic buildings. not less than, description in technical phrases allows whole, concise association of a box of analysis, offers a way of describing organic kinds in phrases in step with their functionality, and aids in figuring out interpretations in accordance with structural layout and practical anatomy. it truly is from this viewpoint that the current publication describes and discusses, on a comparative foundation, organic mechanisms of at­ tachment. even supposing those are one of the least difficult organic mechanisms, they're attention-grabbing of their variety. This presentation is, in a fashion, an outgrowth of that encyclopedic force that's inside of each scientist. through the years, entire libraries of books were scanned due to this common interest; the library of the Munich Zoological Institute has proved a very worthwhile resource of knowledge. This little booklet is a far ab­ breviated distillation of the various thousand dossier playing cards which resulted from this urge to collect.

Example text

Rigid, Permanent Attachments have no less than three different attachments: with the scutellum itself, with each other by means of a remarkable reciprocal tongue and groove, and finally, with the tergum teo In the broad, median dorsal longitudinal groove of the tergum, the so-called metanotal suture (cf. mns in 99), both elytra are seated, each by a sturdy median ventral process vI, the sub sutural ridge. The two ridges are pressed against one another and together form a longitudinal tongue which fits tightly into the groove.
