This is the most complete and original biological field guide in history. Lynn Margulis, one of the most brilliant biologists of the 20th century, and her colleague Karlene Schwartz provide a roller-skate tour of the whole world of living things, from the smallest bacteria in the hot springs of Yellowstone to the mightiest oak (humans too, but we are set firmly in our place). In his Foreword, Stephen Jay Gould says "If the originality comes before us partly as a 'picture book,' it should not be downgraded for that reason--for primates are visual animals, and the surest instruction in a myriad of unknown creatures must be a set of figures with concise instruction about their meaning--all done so admirably in this volume." --Mary Ellen CurtinAbout the Author:
Lynn Margulis is Distinguished University Professor at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, and is the author of Symbiosis in Cell Evolution and, with Dorion Sagan, co-author of Origins of Sex, What Is Life?, and What Is Sex?
Karlene V. Schwartz teaches in the biology department at the University of Massachusetts, Boston, and is a professional photographer of natural history.
