Using the natural methods of 'biomimicry' to fix Cleveland's Cuyahoga River

from today's Plain Dealer...
CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Maybe biomimicry can finish saving the Cuyahoga. The new, nature-inspired engineering could be the source of environmental improvements to the river that runs through Cleveland -- especially in the biologically challenged, steel-lined shipping channel. That someday is already dawning, some key river advocates say. Biomimicry is the fast-growing field in which engineers, artists and designers are drawing more and more from natural examples of successful adaptations to solve human problems.
