This book includes both theoretical conceptualization and practical applications in the fields of product design, architecture, engineering, and materials. The book aimed to inspire scholars and professionals to look at nature as a source of inspiration for developing new project solutions. Moreover, being one of the literature’s first direct associations of bionics with sustainability, the book can be used as a reference for those who seek to know more about the theory of bioinspired applications, as well as new technologies, methods, materials, and processes.


Two-way bionics: How technological advances for bioinspired designs contribute to the study of plant anatomy and morphology.- Transport package and release of Ladybug larvae with Biomimetic concepts.- Characterization of the gradient cellular structure of bottle gourd (Lagenaria siceraria) and implications for bioinspired applications.- Bamboo-based microfluidic system for sustainable bio-devices.- Bionics for inspiration: a new look at Brazilian natural materials for application in sustainable jewelry.- Exploiting the potential of Nature for sustainable building designs: A novel bioinspired framework based on a characterization of living envelopes.- Bio-inspired Approaches for Sustainable Cities Design in Tropical Climate.
