Mother of Invention_Biomimetics and Interface_The Interdisciplinary Journal of The Royal Society

More and more materials scientists and engineers are involved in Biomimetics, natures almost infinate source of inspiration.

Here are a few links to excellent, highly reputable and freely available papers, to help research this approach to science, invention and innovation:

1. Biomimetic materials research: what can we really learn from nature's structural materials?(PDF)

and from the reference list:

2. Biomimetic Modelling, Vincent, J.F.V. 2003 Phil. Trans. R. Soc. B, V.358,P1597-1603 (PDF) (doi:10.1098/rstb.2003.1349).

3. Systematic technology transfer from biology to engineering. Vincent, J.F.V.and; Mann, D.L. 2002 Phil.Trans. R. Soc. A V360,P 159-173 (PDF)

4. Biomimetics: its practice and theory.Vincent, J.F.V., Bogatyreva, O.A., Bogatyrev, N.R., Bowyer, A. and Pahl, A.-K. 2006, J. R. Soc. Interface V3,P471-482(PDF)

Thanks a lot for you help. I have given the site high priority space.

I fully appreciate and share your concern for the environment and let me add that "our" concern may be extended to all careful, caring scientists and engineers and managers irrespective of their chosen discipline(s).

I wish I could thank you personally, whatever the circumstanses that lead you to seek you to remain anonomous.

Best wishes in 2009 and beyond.

PS thank you for sparing me comments on my spelling mistakes, I usually notice these when moderating comment especially when I have my Google Toolbar corrector operational.
