About this book

Essays on matters ecological examine recent work in the field and central ideas of an increasingly important science, ranging from the behavior of the wolf spider to the variety of plant and animal species

"A mind-tingling survey [...] of the many factors involved in the interrelationships of all living things [...] An incisive and stirring book, and a model of scientific explanation."
- The New Yorker
