Here is one of the most provocative, wide-ranging, and delightful books ever written about our environment. Paul Colinvaux takes a penetrating look at the science of ecology, bringing to his subject both profound knowledge and an enthusiasm that will encourage a greater understanding of the environment and of the efforts of those who seek to preserve it.

Review: A mind-tingling survey . . . of the many factors involved in the interrelationships of all living things. . . . An incisive and stirring book, and a model of scientific explanation. (The New Yorker )
