Biomechanical Bibliography

At the biomechanics laboratory at Vassar College, we are assembling a bibliography that currently contains 653 items. It is arranged alphabetically by author. Since the comparative biomechanics of swimming is of particular interest to us, you'll find that subject well represented.

Because the construction of this bibliography is on-going, we would appreciate your help. If you know of important works on swimming biomechanics that are missing, please send the citations to John Long.
