Plant surfaces are the interfaces of the organisms with respect to their environment. In the micro-dimension they show an enormous variety of functional three-dimensional structures. Their materials and structures developed over millions of years by evolutionary processes in which their functionality has been proven and selected by environmental pressures. As a result, nature developed highly functional materials with several amazing properties like superhydrophobicity and superhydrophilicity… CONTINUE READING
