Biomimicry & Treatment Wetlands

Biomimicry or biomimetics is the examination of nature, its models, systems, processes, and elements to emulate or take inspiration from in order to solve human problems. The termbiomimicry and biomimetics come from the Greek words bios, meaning life, and mimesi, meaning to imitate. Other terms often used are bionics, bio-inspiration, and biognosis. (source wikipedia)
Biomimicry (from bios, meaning life, and mimesis, meaning to imitate) is a new discipline that studies nature's best ideas and then imitates these designs and processes to solve human problems. Studying a leaf to invent a better solar cell is an example. I think of it as "innovation inspired by nature." (source

Treatment wetlands play a great role in the biomimicry improvement. It is anture that treat and clean up wastewaters  and the final aspect of TWs are really good. Here below some images of floating treatment wetland systems
