    that are inspired by nature

    Which does "that are inspired.." clause describe? "design and development" or "products" or all of them? Logically, it could be all the three.
    If it is the first, is that why "are" is used for "design and developent", a plural form?
    3
    )Nature
    1)has always been the source for new inventions.
    For example, birds inspired the design of airplanes.
    Biomimicry is the field 1)that deals with the design and development of products that are inspired by nature.
