Mechanical constraints are recognized as a key regulator of biological processes, from molecules to organisms, throughout embryonic development, tissue regeneration and in situations of physiological regulation and pathological disturbances. The study of the influence of these physical constraints on living tissues, in particular on cells, and on organisms of the plant and animal kingdoms, has been the object for a decade of important works carried out at the interface between biology, physics and mechanics, constituting a new discipline:mechanobiology.
