Summary

Ocean organisms employ engineering strategies which enable them to maintain life functions such as buoyancy and locomotion in a growing, self repairing body. This book explores the possibilities of using these engineering feats in the human world. Each chapter presents a particular engineering problem and then looks to the organisms of the ocean for solutions. The book offers case studies that demonstrate how natural solutions can be applied to some specific engineering challenges, both terrestrial and oceanic. The text encourages engineers to explore new ideas, rather than mimic them.
