The Biomimicry Manual: What Can Super-Organisms Teach Us About Collaboration?

 

Biomimicry-Super-Organisms-Mole-Rats

When I think of monkeys, I don’t think of them living in the desert, namely because primates love trees, water, big juicy leaves, and fruit. In fact, only two primates have even bothered to go there, and the Hamadryas baboon is the first. With a magnificent white mane, scarlet face, and bizarrely complex social system, he was a sacred muse of the ancient Egyptians; in the afterlife, it fell upon his regal mantle to devour the souls of the dead that were deemed “unrighteous”—serious stuff! The other primate is us. Both are supreme collaborators, and wherever resources are scarce and unpredictable, the most successful creatures are those who work as a team. That type of collaboration is the skill that we’re going to explore in today’s entry of The Biomimicry Manual!

It hasn’t been a good year for the land in Russia. Earlier this year a gaping 262-foot wide hole opened up in Siberia and now a gigantic sinkhole has popped up in the Perm region. Unlike the last hole, that still baffles scientists, this hole is the result of a collapsing potash mine which left a chasm right in the middle of an abandoned mining town. At least the town is uninhabited – but a connected mine sits underneath a populated town just a few miles away, and experts fear that it may also collapse in the near future.
