Janine Benyus: Biomimicry's surprising lessons from nature's engineers

"Learning about the natural world is one thing; learning from the natural world -- that's the switch," Benyus says. She shares many experiences she has had in teaching engineers to learn from nature.

She asks:

  1. How does life create things? (Life does not "heat, beat and treat")
  2. How does life make the most of things? (Life gives information to matter)
  3. How does life make things disappear in a system? (Because life deals with systems, not things)
