Nature's Nanostructures

edited by Amanda S. Barnard and Haibo Guo

"At a time when we are concerned about the potential hazards of engineered nanomaterials, this book gives a timely and delightful overview of the variety of nanoparticles that exist in our environment — from noble metal nanoparticles in ore systems and nanodust in the solar system to magnetic nanoparticles in homing pigeons and photonic crystals in beetles. It is an enjoyable and a useful companion for anyone interested in knowing about the potential hazards of nanomaterials and those seeking inspiration from nature to create functional materials."
