Adapt : How We Can Learn from Nature's Strangest Inventions Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


How can sea cucumbers, geckos and termites help us cure diseases, camouflage soldiers and even keep our buildings cool?

Nature's creations are more sophisticated and elegant than anything humans have created.

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.

Adapt draws the line from nature to modernity. Khan leaves no stone unturned... Readers will leave this book with a buzzing excitement. - BBC Wildlife
