- Broadsides from the Other Orders: A Book of Bugs by Sue Hubbell. Fascinating reading. Science is personalized with observations of the author. Facts about bugs we all recognize are presented in such an interesting manner that I could hardly put this down, and was disappointed when I finished.
Lifesense by John Downer. Downer explores the interactions of humans and animals through the ages. It is interesting with lots of great pictures, but ends up leaning too heavily towards concluding that humans are inferior evolutionary products to suit me.
Our Natural History: The Lessons of Lewis and Clark by Daniel B. Botkin. Botkin claims that the explorer's records are exact enough that we can infer baseline populations of many plants and animals, which information could guide us in forming policy for protection or restoration. Interesting, and well thought-out, with methods for calculations patiently explained.
Supersense by John Downer. This book is full of great pictures and has a text that does not get too technical. Downer describes the amazing abilities of animals to sense things outside the range of human experience. Did you know that a fly in a room lit only by fluorescent lights will see everything as in a strobe light?
