LIFE IN THE UNDERGROWTH
by David Attenborough
2006, 288 pages, 275 color photos. For every one of us, there are 200 million invertebrates. This wonderfully illustrated exploration of insects and spiders is arranged in five parts, based on the highly acclaimed television series. They range from the first “invasion” of land by invertebrates to the complex “supersocieties” that have developed among social insects. The well-written, enjoyable text describes literally hundreds of species and behaviors, photo enhanced by minuscule cameras and optical systems allowing highly detailed closeup images. Hardcover; 7x 10″.
The two-disk DVD version of the five outstanding programs produced by the BBC is also available, see #9487DVD.
