Patterns in Nature: Why the Natural World Looks the Way It Does

Renowned science writer, Philip Ball explores the seemingly unrelated patterns which appear in all aspects of nature worldwide. Although at first the natural world seems chaotic, Ball seeks to define these patterns with the same mathematical and physical principals to give us a sense of the Earth’s cohesion.

 

Richly illustrated with 250 colour photographs to demonstrate, Bell explores such similarities as those between the swirls of a snail’s shell and the stars of the galaxy or the branches of a tree and those of a river network.

 

Revealing the order at the foundation of the seemingly disorganised world, this book explores both the math and science and the beauty and artistry behind nature’s awe-inspiring designs.
