About this book

Sex is the ultimate driving force of evolution. By mixing genes, variety is created and our survival is ensured. The meeting of mates, the sexual act, and the consequences of producing offspring forge an alliance between males and females that is rife with tension and distrust. John Sparks provides a coherent account of sexual reproduction in the natural world, with fine photos.
