EDIT: OH SNAP thanks for the DD!! If you guys are really as interested in this concept as me, here's some stuff:

Patterns in Nature This wikipedia page basically covers everything shown here.

Many natural objects exhibit mathematical properties: Tessellation, Fractals, Symmetry. Some natural structures can be explained in geometric terms: Spirals, Geometry (if I'd had more space I would have loved to include molecules and stuff with geometry!). Other natural phenomena are more complex, but can actually be described mathematically: Meanders, Patterns, Waves. A little more in depth with those last three:

Meandering: Rivers Snakes **(the mathematics of how snakes move is obviously different than the formulas that describe how rivers are formed, but I included them together because I wasn't sure where else they would fit)

Turing patterns / reaction-diffusion: Mathematical explanations for certain naturally occurring patterns. Scientists aren't quite 100% on it in practice, but it's still REALLY COOL. Long PDF Youtube video

Waves: Sand dunes Waves in general

Also be sure to check out this awesome animation: Nature by Numbers and also Vihart, a youtuber who makes awesome math/art/music videos!

/EDIT


This was my final project for one of my classes last semester that I COMPLETELY forgot about...It was to make a collection of related images, kinda like a zine. I suck at math but I love it anyway. Made in Illustrator.

I see what you're trying to do, but alot of this isn't math. Otherwise great!
