Описание
The history of life on Earth is far older - and odder - than many of us realise. In this groundbreaking book, prize-winning author Richard Fortey takes us on a journey across the globe, via America, China, Australia and New Zealand, uncovering creatures who have survived, almost unchanged, through geological time. Algal mats, musk oxen, the horseshoe crab and the velvet worm; these remarkable plants and animals offer a tantalising glimpse of pivotal points in evolutionary history Written with Fortey's customary gusto, Survivors combines the very best science writing with an explorer's sense of adventure and a poet's wonder at the natural world.
