Hi folks, Forgive me if this has been discussed before but I'm a PC newbie. Just borrowed a book called Biomimicry by Janine M. Benyus (1997 USA). Couldn't help feeling a little sense of "this ain't that new" after only a few pages. Don't get me wrong it's all great stuff, I'm just suprised there wasn't a mention of Permaculture concepts in there given how wide spread the PC net is? e.g. "Biomimicry is a new science that studies nature's models and then imitates or takes inspiration from these designs and processes to solve human problems..."
