What is biomimicry?



  1. 0 Votes

    Biomimicry is the practice of using nature as a model to solve human problems in the most sustainable manner possible.  For instance, to come up with coloring agents that do not rely on toxic chemicals, researchers have studied how the colors in the wings of butterflies are produced.  To find a way to make wood glue without formaldehyde, scientists have examined how muscles attach themselves to rocks, and used mussel adaptations as a model.  The idea behind biomimicry is that the easiest way to find sustainable solutions to many problems is to look at how plants and animals have been dealing with these same problems for thousands or millions of years.
