Adapt: How We Can Learn from Nature's Strangest Inventions [9781786492272]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
Nature's creations are more sophisticated and elegant than anything humans have created. Geckos can run upside down along ceilings. Termite mounds can stay cool in the desert without air conditioning. Adapt explores how we can harness such ideas through the ground-breaking new science of biomimicry - which looks to nature to solve pressing problems in engineering and science. From the depths of the oceans to the ice sheets of the Arctic, Amina Khan talks to the researchers at the forefront of this exciting new science, who are designing everything from wind turbines to military camouflage. An entertaining eulogy to the power of evolution, this captivating book is a must read for anyone with an interest in design, nature and technology.
AUTHOR: AMINA KHAN is a science writer at the Los Angeles Times. She's covered the Curiosity's landing on Mars and explored abandoned gold mines in pursuit of a dark matter detector. She's an aluma of the Kavli nanotechnology workshop at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the HiPACC computational astrophysics bootcamp at UC Santa Cruz.
