Description
Information
In his 7th and finest book, zoologist Christopher McGowan describes the great variety of predator-prey relationships that shape the natural world. Most animals are either eaten by or eat other animals. The chances of being devoured, or of eating some other organism to survive, are exceedingly high. Consequently the evolutionary pressures to succeed as a predator, or to succeed at not becoming a prey, are intense. McGowan examines the offensive and counter-offensive weapon systems that have emerged in response to the urgent imperative to survive, from the different but overlapping worlds of mammals, reptiles, plants and microorganisms, to the fossilized records of the dinosaurs. Intensely curious and even more knowledgeable, Christopher McGowan is an ideal guide to the astonishing inventiveness of the biological world.
