The coevolution between molds, glass and ceramic artifacts takes its study from nature's phenomenon of echo location. The Nepenthes Hemsleyana pitcher plant is unique because it has adapted to be easily detected by the woolly bat’s echolocation. The shape and size of the plant's vessel is perfectly suited to the bat's anatomy. Functioning as a nest for the bat, the plant benefits by collecting and digesting the bat’s feces for nutrition –  creating a mutually responsive and beneficial relationship.
