Summary
In Earth's 4-billion-year history, from the highest mountain to the deepest ocean, nature has solved all of life's problems. Evolution is the ultimate inventor and many of man's most clever engineering solutions have exact counterparts in nature. Biomimetics is the evolving science of looking to nature for answers to modern problems, often in unexpected ways. Investigates how flies improve search and rescue; termite feces helps builders; pine cones inspire new-age apparel and sharks Olympic swimsuits; nanotechnology mimics moths; Arctic poppies influence eco-friendly architecture; cockroaches inspire space engineers; fish become cars and airplanes take the shape of birds
