About this book

Just what is going on among the rustling rows of corn in the backyard garden? And just who is cowering under the pansies? Gardens and flower beds may appear tranquil but they are actually stages on which a million hidden dramas unfold. To see them, we need to peep into holes and corners and look beneath things, because that's where the timid cricket awaits night's darkness, where thistles preparing for invasion pack their parachutes, and where the smaller scales of things turns roving centipedes into rampaging monsters. Discover Nature in the Garden presents garden life, from flowers and weeds to earthworms and moles, in remarkable detail, with information on anatomy, food webs, and ecology.
