In this series of three books, the author escorts the reader on a fascinating and inspiring exploration of areas of the biological world unseen and unknown by most. In each volume, the author presents often complex scientific ideas in a style that is lively and easily understood. Together with stunning 3D images, taken using one of the most modern and powerful scanning electron microscopes available, the books present a unique portrait of the biosphere.
In Volume 2, the author reveals answers to some fascinating questions about land creatures, such as: Did you know house flies use their feet to taste the environment? Spiders have specialized structures just below their knees, but what are they for?
We all know that the silk produced by spiders is strong, but for the first time readers will be able to see in 3D how complex and variable webs are. These are just a few of the fascinating questions which will be answered as a result of looking at Kerry Swanson’s outstanding 3D images.
