Biomimetics is the inspiration and the driving force for numerous investigations linked to the structure and function of organisms, both at the cellular and organismic level and interactions with the environment (biotic and abiotic). All these have been studied by scientific methodology i.e., samples from the living matter of nature were transferred to research laboratories; this was the beginning. Then interdisciplinary research, infrastructures and applications, especially with the contribution of material science, promoted biomimetics by revealing and experimentally controlling the application of properties that have been found to exist in certain living organisms. By observing structures and functions of living organisms (described in previous chapters), many international researchers were able to develop innovative materials that mimic the properties of biological, living organisms in nature. Such constructions require the cooperation of researchers with different scientific disciplines and specializations, who can collectively understand all the theoretical background behind each innovation. In this chapter, some examples of properties and characteristics that exist in living organisms and have gradually led scientific research to biomimetics are presented.
