    Abstract

    Tribology is omnipresent in living nature. Blinking eyes, synovial joints, white blood cells rolling along the endothelium and the foetus moving in a mother’s womb—tribological problems with evolutionary optimized solutions! This chapter introduces biology for tribologists, highlights the benefits of biomimetics (i.e., knowledge transfer from living nature to engineering), first for tribology in general and subsequently specifically for nano-tribology and materials issues in MEMS. The outlook deals with perspectives of green and sustainable nanotribology for a liveable future for all.
