Biomimicry: Innovation Inspired by Nature
Explore the fascinating field of biomimicry as Janine Benyus explains how such research is transforming the way we live. Biomimicry is innovation inspired by the study of nature and the use of those observations to improve applied STEM approaches. The author takes us into the lab and out in the field with researchers as they stir vats of proteins to unleash their computing power; analyze how electrons zipping around a leaf cell convert sunlight into fuel in trillionths of a second; discover miracle drugs by watching what chimps eat when they’re sick; and study the prairie ecology as a model for low-maintenance agriculture. Recommended for ages 11 to adult.
