Why and how is an earthquake set off? Is El Nino a climatic aberration? Why are some animals hermaphrodites? Why do carnivorous plants exist?
The answers to these and so many more questions are found in this spectacularly illustrated exploration of the natural world. Each of the 18 chapters explores a different aspect of nature, giving you a dramatic picture of the natural world from the fight for survival to the art of communication.
Explore the most fascinating phenomena of the animal, vegetable and mineral worlds and experience them as if you were there: the birth of a volcano, the death of a star, the sight of a male midwife toad carrying his eggs, a weaver ant using its larvae to sew together the edges of leaves and much more.
This authoritative book will captivate you as it reveals the spectacular theatre that is our natural world and how its various actors play out their parts
