About this book

Functional Surfaces in Biology, Volume 1 is devoted to the rapidly growing area of science dealing with structure and properties of biological surfaces in their relation to particular functions. Functional Surfaces in Biology, Volume 1, written by a team of specialists from different disciplines, covers various surface functions such as protection, defense, water transport, anti-wetting, self cleaning, light reflection and scattering, and acoustics. Because biological surfaces have a virtually endless potential of technological ideas for the development of new materials and systems, inspirations from biology could also be interesting for a broad range of topics in surface engineering.
