About this book

A fascinating journey through the natural world as the author imparts to us the central importance of size and scale to the survival of every living organism.

"From the opening lines, Diatoms to Dinosaurs captured my attention. Personal anecdotes, the careful selection of interesting examples, and lucid writing make the book a delight to read. Seldom are biological concepts so accessible."
- Philip J Currie
