Geography

Birds conquered the air long before the Wright Brothers, the burrs on plants are amazingly similar to velcro fastenings, rattlesnakes have an alarm system, bats and dolphins have their own form of sonar... Nature is full of amazing designs and mechanisms that appear to have inspired the engineering and technology we use today. This book shows you how and why.
