From Booklist:

The Innovations from Nature series explores how researchers take ideas from plants and animals and turn them into projects with practical applications. Each book looks at one aspect of nature and the inventive work it has inspired. The text is usually clear, short, and to the point. With colorful photos and page design as well as plenty of white space, the books are inviting. From Gecko Feet discusses the gecko’s remarkable climbing ability. Studies of the setae (tiny hairs), the motion, and the tendons of geckos’ feet are leading to the development of new adhesives. Each book concludes with a chapter highlighting the work of a few significant researchers in the field. Short but intriguing books on biomimicry. Grades 4-7. --Carolyn Phelan
