First held in 2002, this book contains papers presented at the 7th International Conference on Comparing Design in Nature with Science and Engineering. Written by specialists, such as physical scientists, engineers, biologists, medical experts as well as those involved in humanities and arts from around the world, they detail a variety of studies involving nature and its significance for modern scientific thought and design. Scientists and engineers now have at their disposal a vast array of relationships for materials, mechanisms and control. The resulting laws have been painstakingly assembled by observation and analysis and span the cosmic scale of space down to the molecular level of genetics. In particular, they have made us aware of the rich diversity of the natural world around us. Topics covered include: Mechanics in nature; Nature and architecture; Natural materials and processes; Solutions from nature; Biometrics and bio-inspiration; Biological studies; Locomotion in nature; Emerging ideas; Gravitational biology; Natural energy harvesting; Infrastructure; Water issues; Evolutionary physics; Adaptation in nature.
