About this book

Although fractal geometry has demonstrated its utility in a wide range of biological fields, it remains a somewhat elusive concept for most biologists. This book presents applications of fractals at several scales of biological organisation with the goal of making the concepts, computations and conclusions more approachable for life scientists.
