Meet amazing engineers, such as the spiders who build immense webs stretching over rivers; funky physicists, like the bats that can see with sound; and surprising chemists, such as the corpse flower that smells like smelly socks to attract insects to pollinate it! The science behind each genius adaptation is explained clearly in Steve Mould's trademark humorous style and you'll be amazed by nature's solutions to some of the world's trickiest problems. Additional biomimicry pages even show where we've copied nature to improve our own science and engineering, such as the streamlined nose of bullet trains, modelled on the shape of a kingfisher's beak.
