Cover: Mid-frontal projected 0.615 mm-thick sections from the human proximal femur showing the distribution of failed tissues (green: tensile failure; red: compressive failure) at the structure-level 0.2%-offset yield point for each femur. The femurs are arranged in the order of increasing femoral strength, from the top left to the bottom right corners (adapted from Nawathe et al., “Microstructural Failure Mechanisms in the Human Proximal Femur for Sideways Fall Loading,” J Bone Miner Res. 2014; 29:507–515).
