Biomimicry: Innovation Inspired by Nature

Janine M. Benyus

This profound and available e-book info how technological know-how is learning nature’s most sensible rules to unravel our hardest 21st-century problems.

If chaos concept reworked our view of the universe, biomimicry is reworking our lifestyles on the earth. Biomimicry is innovation encouraged through nature – profiting from evolution’s 3.8 billion years of R&D because the first micro organism. Biomimics learn nature’s top principles: photosynthesis, mind strength, and shells – and adapt them for human use. they're revolutionising how we invent, compute, heal ourselves, harness strength, fix the surroundings, and feed the area.

Science author and lecturer Janine Benyus names and explains this phenomenon. She takes us into the lab and out within the box with state-of-the-art researchers as they stir vats of proteins to unharness their computing strength; examine how electrons zipping round a leaf phone convert sun into gasoline in trillionths of a moment; become aware of miracle medicinal drugs by means of observing what chimps consume while they’re ailing; research the hardy prairie as a version for low-maintenance agriculture; and more.
