About this book

Living fossils are species that have changed little if at all for millions of years. Some are famous such as the coelacanth, whilst others are more surprising, such as the magnolia. In this book, the author describes his travels around the world in search of these survivors of the past, and explains in detail how they affect our thinking about the process of evolution and the great extinctions of the past. An intriguing and informative book.
