    Download ↠ Biomimicry ò PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB BiomimicryI adore nature and science should do the same to get behind all those secrets and abilities shaped by evolutionThe sheer speed of technological progress that leads to the unleashing of faster and faster scientific insights has already confirmed and refuted some of the ideas of this already over 20 year old book but the future will show if the new results won´t have to be reconsidered again And again AndIt is simply logical long time less economic thinking to focus on the use of up to billions of years old nature concepts instead of generating fictional trillions of cash and messing the whole earth system thing up Just by copying prototypes that s

    Download ↠ Biomimicry ò PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB BiomimicryThe first chapter of this 1997 book should be mandatory curriculum in something whatever discipline you can lock this philosophical framework for technical applications of environmental science It is engineering biology and philosophy wrapped up into one Her premise isn't the standard concept of biomimicry that nature learns from its own mistakes and evolves and that mimicry is one way species learn She instead posits that over billions of years nature has developed vastly superior technology than humans Here technology has a broad meaning including sustainable self regulating systems Think of pest free regenerating and durable prairie landscapes instead of massive mono crop agriculture

    Download ↠ Biomimicry ò PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB BiomimicryThe concept of biomimicry and the author are featured prominently in Prince Charles’ TV documentary project “Harmony” The book Biomimicry was written in 1997 and the science is a little stale but the idea is still very interesting Biomimicry is largely happening in the subtleties of biology so be prepared for a heavy dose of biochemistry For me Benyus’ evangelical writing style is poetic but out of context for such a scientific topic I appreciate natural beauty and an elegant design solution as much as the next guy and clearly natural designs often demonstrate extreme economy of necessity Yet Benyus occasionally loses sight of the fact that the nature we see today is the result of 38 billion years of trial and error rather than some particular design genius The second of Benyus’ three principles of Biomimicry nature as a measure for what is right and appropriate is ext

    Download ↠ Biomimicry ò PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB BiomimicryBiomimicry is a frustratingly good book the reason for that is lack of depth JM Benyus writes exuberantly about how to create a sustainable future but doesn't give enough details about implementation challenges The chapter on How we will feed ourselves in the future was the one that has realistically achievable ideas but the rest of them are mostly theoretical As an Engineer it was hard to swallow the biomimicry pill presented here Looking for sources is only half the story and engineering it is the other half Anyhow I would still recommend this book for people looking for inspiration to change the world RegardsVinay
