9789077174487: Industry of Nature: Another Approach to Ecology

Although information on ecology and sustainability is published and posted daily, it's obvious that most people feel powerless when faced with the state of our environment today. Materials and technologies claim a dominant position with regard to ecological problems, but we sometimes forget that these may not always be the key to good, comprehensive solutions. The use of materials is only one approach to the larger ecological issue, which clearly has philosophical, metaphysical, economical, and social implications.

The world of nature, on the other hand, is an amazing arena filled with smart models of simple and sustainable behaviors. Nature undeniably questions the pretentiously authoritative status that humans have allocated themselves, and nature is the best example of a wholly sustainable and autonomous industry.

Industry of Nature explains seventy-five of nature's strategies to fulfill needs such as protection, temperature regulation, bonding, air conditioning, self-cleaning, anti-collision, transmission of information, camouflage, and many more. By describing these strategies and adding practical application examples, the book provides creative professionals with inspiration and tools for augmenting their work, expanding their imaginations, and improving the world in which we live. Interviews with various specialists, a chapter covering the history of biomimicry, and a bibliography deepen the subject and provide the reader with handles to further delve into the subject. A profusion of photographs and illustrations brings the ideas and relevant information to life.
