The aim of this article is to examine the relationship of large-
scale Peer-to-Peer (P2P) overlay networks and certain bi-
ological systems. In particular, we focus on organization
mechanisms that are crucial to adjust and optimize the be-
havior of large-scale P2P systems in the face of a dynamic en-
vironment. We propose to adopt concepts and mechanisms
of biological systems in order to extend their capabilities to
cope with environmental changes, e.g. a highly dynamic net-
work topology. We introduce the notion of organic P2P over-
lay networks that adopt behavioral and structural charac-
teristics of biological systems. We present a framework that
poses as a basis for understanding, investigating, and imple-
menting organic P2P overlay networks. Using a case study
