Encyclopedia of Adaptations in the Natural World is a wide-ranging catalog of the most important of those adaptations -- from photosynthesis to the the peculiar vampire-like behavior of the tiny life form called the prion. Its seven chapters cover the key survival challenges all organisms face. Entries within those chapters cover specific adaptations from all forms of life, including animals, plants, bacteria, algae, fungi, and viruses. For each adaptation, the book also describes a related technological breakthrough in the human world, showing how engineers today study natural processes to help them develop new inventions.
