Klappentext"In "Life in the Undergrowth," Sir David Attenborough again makes the difficult seem effortless--he delivers with characteristic grace and informality intimate details of the lives of creatures that often pass without notice, and yet on whom the functioning of this biological planet rests. I believe this to be the very best in his series--the sense of breathless wonder in his subject is palpable--and it joins the classic collections of nature essays by E. O. Wilson, Thomas Eisner, and Rachel Carson."--Brian D. Farrell, Professor of Biology and Curator in Entomology, Museum of Comparative Zoology, Harvard University.
ZusammenfassungOffers a glimpse into the life of invertebrates. This book looks at invertebrates the world over: their arrival on land and mastery of various habitats, and their variety of hunting, mating, and organized social behaviors.
