Abstract: 
The basic definitions and a history of the development of biomimetics as a discipline that
considers nature-inspired design are presented in this paper. The discussion and the results of the
application of principles of nature-inspired design in machine elements design are given. The fact
that transition zones that Nature chose and designed on trees in many cases survived for more
than a hundred years, resisting on the various and variable external loads and other external
conditions, is considered. Presented case study used the nature-inspired transition shapes in the
research of innovative design and geometric optimization of transition zones of high-loaded
shafts. The comparative Finite Element Analysis is performed for a particular transition zone with
traditional engineering design, as well as with nature-inspired design. The conclusions about the
increase of load capacity that is obtained with innovative biomimetics design are discussed
