Séminaire de Biologie par Malcolm Burrows

Prof. Malcolm Burrows is coming from the Department of Zoology at the University of Cambridge to talk about some striking aspects of animal biology and biomechanics. His talk is titled

"How do insects jump so quickly ; muscles, catapults and gears."

Come to this seminar and you will see how nature has already designed things that were thought to be Man ideas !
His talk is scheduled as usual in Salle des Theses, Monday 15, at 11 am.

What is this !!?? come to the seminar and see for yourself :)
