About this book

Avise, an award-winning geneticist, describes how scientists examine DNA to address long-standing questions about wild animals, plants, and microbes. Through dozens of stories that span the Earth - from the arctic to tropical jungles to the depths of the ocean - nature emerges as a realm where truth can be far stranger than fiction.
