In this series of three books, the author escorts the reader on a fascinating and inspiring exploration of areas of the biological world unseen and unknown by most. In each volume, the author presents often complex scientific ideas in a style that is lively and easily understood. Together with stunning 3D images, taken using one of the most modern and powerful scanning electron microscopes available, the books present a unique portrait of the biosphere. Each book contains a pair of 3D glasses.
What does the inside of a leaf look like and why do leaves have all of those 'pipes'? On the outside surfaces of a leaf are stomata, but have you ever wondered what they are for? Where do pollen grains come from and are flowers really just modified leaves? Volume 3 examines some of the earliest life-forms, describing the continuing impact these organisms have on planet Earth. Follow the development of fungi from spore germination through to maturity and reproduction, all in brilliant 3D.
WOW! What a pleasure it has been to review this magnificent suite of innovative, modern and creative books which do more than just describe: they inspire and grab attention. They bring the 3D perspective to the microscopic world that is so vital for a fuller appreciation and understanding of the living and fossilised microscopic biological world[...] Not only do the pictures leap out at you but some you just want to touch[...]. Each time you look at these pictures there is more to see and more questions to ask, surely, the life blood of science. Science is addictive thanks to these books.
