Description

<p><b>An ambitious and beautifully illustrated account of the evolution and biology of insects.</b></p><p>Insects are the busy, teeming arthropods on whose activities much of life on earth depends, and whose global populations are currently under the gravest of threats – with unimaginable consequences for us all.</p><p>In <i>Alien Worlds</i>, Steve Nicholls explores what insects are, and why there are so many of them; the impact on insects (the only flying invertebrates) of the possession of wings; and the extraordinary sensory world of insects.</p><p>Drawing on an insect TV series produced by Steve's production company, this book will offer a winning fusion of glorious imagery and fine biological writing by an entomological specialist who writes both entertainingly and with authentic scientific rigour – and who also happens to be a brilliant photographer.</p>

Quotes

<b>PRAISE FOR STEVE NICHOLLS</b>: <br />
'Steve Nicholls is an expert guide, leading us across meadows blooming with buttercups and orchids... He presents a visually stunning, readable and scientifically rigorous survey of Britain's wildflowers' <i>Countryside</i>. <br />
'Each of the 14 plant types, from bluebells and lilies to orchids and sundews is examined, explaining the fascinating science behind how they survive and thrive in the wild, to the remarkable social and cultural history of each, and how we have woven them into our national heritage' <i>Garden News</i>. <br />
'[A] beautifully produced book... Substantial and well-informed... The author has a light touch and, while it might at first glance look like a book for the coffee table, it is definitely a book worth a closer read'
