Non-uniform pore distribution improves impact resistance.
Scales provide penetrative protectionstriped bass
Scales on striped bass provide high resistance to penetration due to their double-layer structure.
Scales form protective layerbony fish
Some bony fish protect themselves with a layer of smooth-edged cycloid scales made of bone.
Armor protects against predatorsthreespine stickleback
The plate-based armor of the threespine stickleback confers resistance to penetrating attacks due to local structure of individual plates, interlocking mechanisms, plate geometry, porosity, compositional gradients, and surface topology.
Hierarchical organization of peel confers impact resistancepomelo
The pomelo fruit has excellent damping properties due to the hierarchical organization of its composite peel
Stems resist bucklingplants
The stems of many plants resist buckling using low-density foam cores.
