About this title


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.

From the Back Cover:

"A highly readable and accessible account of the complex way in which nature has molded its ecosystems by fitting predators to prey and food chains to both."--John Barkham
