About this book

The story of biology is the ultimate narrative of discovery. It tells how humankind has explored and examined the myriad fonns of life on Earth, constantly uncovering new treasures.

This book traces our understanding of the natural world, from its origins in myth and untested belief, through the development of the experimental method, to modern science. It also follows the change of perspective from viewing nature as a resource to be exploited, to recognizing it as a complex web of organisms worthy of respect and conservation.
