Reverse Biomimicry

Fascinating post from WorldChanging on a Canadian experiment to apply:

models for the propagation of computer viruses across the Internet to the spread of the spiny water flea in Canadian lakes, an invasive species. The network model provided new insights into both how the flea moves from lake to lake and how it could be controlled.

Jamais floats the term “technomimicry” for this phenomenon… Other ideas?
