Through the Resource Handbook, readers will be be immersed into the world of biomimicry the “verb,” gaining a competitive edge, and a fresh perspective on how the world around us can, does, and should work. After reading the text, you’ll be well on your way to thinking in systems, designing in context, identifying patterns, and most importantly seeing the millions of organisms around us…differently.
The text is directly applicable to designers, biologists, engineers, entrepreneurs and innovators of any kind, but has also proven valuable to students, educators, and a wide variety of other disciplines.
The digital version of the handbook is not available offline and cannot be printed. Our digital version is intended to be viewed on any tablet, laptop, or desktop computer and you’ll access the book through our online learning platform (Moodle).
