Ask Nature

You've probably heard of the website "Ask Jeeves" that searches information available on the interenet to answer your questions. However a new site - "Ask Nature" looks at nature to solve questions and problems that are pressing global challenges.

The concept behind Ask Nature is Biomimicry, (from bio, meaning life and mimesis, meaning to imitate) a design discipline that seeks sustainable solutions by emulating nature's time tested patterns and strategies.

This is a great source of information for anyone studying science, technology and geography or anyone just interested in the world around them.
