Shapes: Nature's Patterns: A Tapestry in Three Parts

Oxford University Press (2011)
Abstract
Philip Ball explores the science of the shapes we see in nature, revealing how, from the stripes of a zebra to the development of a snowflake or even a human embryo, there is a pattern-forming tendency in the basic processes of nature, and from a few simple themes, and the repetition of simple rules, endless beautiful variations can arise
