The Science of Animals [9780241346785]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

From tiny insects to sleek sharks and majestic elephants, this book invites you to explore the animal kingdom up close - from nose to tail. Whether you're interested in specific animal groups such as mammals or birds or have a passion for wildlife photography, this beautiful book will delight, fascinate, and surprise. DK's elegant new introduction to wild animals is packed with dramatic photography that celebrates their beauty. Crystal-clear diagrams then explain how animals work and describe how they are adapted to do different things and to survive in different environments. The unique nose-to-tail approach, with chapters on different body parts, allows you to focus in on the beauty of the antenna of a moth, the flight feathers of a parrot, or the feeding tentacles of a jellyfish. The Science of Animals also explores how we have depicted animals in art throughout the ages, from zoological drawings that recorded new discoveries to great paintings inspired by a deep connection to the natural world. With fascinating stories, such as how animals communicate, defend their territories, and attract mates, The Science of Animals offers an engaging introduction to the extraordinary diversity of the animal kingdom.
AUTHOR: "Chris Packham is a top television naturalist and an award-winning conservationist, photographer, and author. From the moment he could crawl, he was fascinated by wildlife and as he grew, so too did his menagerie and knowledge. As a young scientist, he studied kestrels, shrews, and badgers, both in his teens and undergraduate days at the zoology department of Southampton University. His TV career began with the award-winning Really Wild Show. His more recent BBC series include the critically acclaimed global series Secrets of our Living Planet, and he is co-presenter of the BBC's Springwatch, Autumnwatch, and Winterwatch. His 2017 memoir Fingers in the Sparkle Jar is a no.1 Sunday Times bestseller."
