Biological sensing organs have -- due to their optimized specialization throughout evolution -- an enormous potential for technical, industrial and medical applications. This applies to sensors intended for different forms of energy such as optical, electrical, magnetic, mechanical and chemical, to name a few of them. This book brings together the first hand knowledge of the frontiers of research in their respective specialization, namely biology, engineering, physical sciences and mathematics opening the way for new research strategies and ways of thinking. The specific topics cover a broad spectrum ranging from biological sensing systems of various organisms, processes of energy transformation and transduction to sensor array fabrication and application. These different fields are linked and glued together by what a sensory system has to accomplish, both in biology and engineering.
