Welcome to the Physical Ecology Group at the University of Lincoln
Although organisms obey the same physical laws as inanimate objects the evolutionary implications of these laws are often neglected. Physical factors influence the fitness value of traits and play an important role in the course of evolution. These are the areas of investigation that interest us.
To wrap up our look at Olympic physics, we bring you a wintry mix of interviews with researchers, courtesy of JFM and FYFD. Learn about the research that helped French biathlete Martin Fourcade leave PyeongChang with 3 gold medals, the physics of avalanches, and how bubbles freeze.
If you missed any of our previous Olympic coverage, you can find our previous entries on the themed series page, and for more great interviews with fluids researchers, check out our previous collab video. (Video credit: T. Crawford and N. Sharp; image credits: GettyImages, T. Crawford and N. Sharp)
