Interface Focus Volume “Animal, Vegetal, Mineral”

The Interface Focus themed issue ‘Growth and function of complex form in biological tissue and synthetic self-assembly‘ was published today by the Royal Society, as volume 7, issue 4 of that journal. Thanks to all contributors, and to Publishing Editor Tim Holt for a great job. The issue is dedicated to the themes of the 2016 Boden Research Conference “Animal, Vegetal, Mineral” that was held in Yallingup/WA in 2016. Check  below or online for the 20 articles that are part of this issue.
