The time for sustainable design is now, and new approaches to construction, renovation and re-purposing offer the exciting promise of a better future. While many of our apparent solutions are unproven, locally inappropriate, and even counterproductive, other species have been solving these same challenges for hundreds of millions of years. Every day we step over or under vivid demonstrations of nature's proven strategies for accommodating challenging and changing conditions. Discover nature's genius for overcoming constraints and find inspiring new solutions to perpetual problems through biomimicry--sustainable innovations inspired by nature's regenerative wisdom. The answers are all around us.

Dr. Tamsin Woolley-Barker is an Evolutionary Biologist, Biomimicry Consultant, and the author of the Amazon Bestseller TEEMING: How Superorganisms Work to Build Infinite Wealth in a Finite World (and your company can too)--about the simple, proven strategies used by ancient societies like ants and honeybees to make each generation more successful than the last.
