Looking up this one, it turns out that this is another example (like
the Proc Biol Soc Wash paper) of publishing somewhere that doesn't
really handle molecular evolutionary biology. From the web site, it's
evident that this is primarily focused on nature-inspired engineering
applications or on impacts of engineering on nature.

Here's a list of the "Biology" papers. Most of them are rather
different from the last.

The mechanical self-optimisation of trees; Application of fractional
calculus in modeling and solving the bioheat equation; Electro-
osmotically driven flow near a soil animal body surface and
biomimetics; The efficiency of the explosive discharge of the
bombardier beetle, with possible biomimetic applications; The
development of a miniature mechanism for producing insect wing motion;
Study on the wettability and self-cleaning of butterfly wing surfaces;
A 3-D finite element analysis of the sunflower (Helianthus annuus L.)
fruit under impact: a useful approach for the understanding and
improvement of its hullability; Structural formation of mandibles by a
cellular automaton model; Characteristics of the non-smooth surface
morphology of living creatures and its application in agricultural
engineering; Bamboo as a composite structure and its mechanically
failure behaviour; Genetic analysis of coordinate flagellar and type
III regulatory circuits in pathogenic bacteria
