Biomimicry is decoding astonishing treasures from nature’s recipe book that we can mimic for our technological and industrial practices. It’s also changing how we think: a crash course in environmental education from nature’s viewpoint. Biomimicry Guild co-founder Dr. Dayna Baumeister chronicles the latest biomimicry inventions and educational breakthroughs by asking, “How would nature do it?” The U.S. Government’s first certified biomimicry professional, Marie Zanowick, shows how biomimicry is influencing federal policy and actions.
