Weekly dose of TED – Janine Benyus: Biomimicry in action

The theme this month is design in nature. Last week we posted a video that discusses how we can use nature to design our cities. This week, Janine Benyus talks about using nature to inspire technology. I don’t have a bigger point to make this week. Biology is cool and we can learn a lot about how to manage our world by modeling our technology off systems that have already been proven.


Deep-sea biologist, population/conservation geneticist, backyard farm advocate. The deep sea is Earth's last great wilderness.
