The physics underlying complex biological architectures

In a new study published in Cell, physicists developed a model that describes how patterns form on pollen spores. This is the first physically rigorous framework that details the thermodynamic processes that lead to these complex biological architectures.

The physics underlying complex biological architectures

A building's architectural plans map out what's needed to keep it from falling down. But design is not just functional: often, it's also beautiful, with lines and shapes that can amaze and inspire.

Nature prefers asymmetrical pollen grains, study finds

A study published in Cell shows that plants favor the production of uneven, asymmetrical patterns on the surface of pollen grains over more symmetrical patterns.
