Yamada's book is a good source of this data, but is sadly out of print.
Anyone know where we can buy a copy in good condition?
Ours has mysteriously disappeared, and is sorely missed :-(.

For similar data that is still in print, the best I have been able to
find is :

Data Book on Mechanical Properties of Living Cells, Tissues and Organs
Eds Hiroyuki Abe, Kozaburo Hayashi & Masaaki Sato
Spinger Verlag Tokyo, 1996 ISBN 4-431-70175-3 436 pages

> Try Yamada's book "Strength of Biological Materials". Also try searching for
