We look at how natural systems can manage light and what we can learn from this to produce photonic systems with natural materials. After an introduction to light scattering, we go on to consider photonic structures in nature, colours of plants and animals, the role of disorder in natural photonic systems, using biopolymers to produce photonic systems and other applications.
