The Living Planet: A Portrait of the Earth, David Attenborough
22 David Attenborough The Living Planet: A Portrait of the Earth
Collins / BBC 234738 London 1984 0002191393 / 9780002191395 Hardcover Very Good Condition Good Nowhere on our planet is devoid of life. Plants, animals and man thrive or survive within the extremes of climate and almost infinite variety of domicile which it offers. Single species and often whole communities, adapt to make the most of ice-cap and tundra, forest and plain, desert, ocean and volcano. The adaptations are sometimes extraorfinary: fish which walk or lay eggs on leaves in mid air; snakes that fly; flightless birds that graze like deer; and bears which grow hair on the soles of their feet. In The Living Planet, based on his BBC television series, David Attenbourough's searching eye, unfailing curiousty and infectious enthusiasm, explain and illuminate the intricate lives of these colonies - from the lonely heights of the Himalayas to the wild creatures which have established themselves in the most recent of environments, the city. By the end of this biook it is difficult to say which is the more astonishing - the ingenuity with which individual species contrive a living of the complexity of their interdependence on each other and the habitations provided by our plant. As in the author's previous book, Life on Earth, which unfolded the story of evolution, a profusion of superb photographs illustrates the principal facets of the earth's surface and their inhabitants. 320 pages. Fully Illustrated. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos. Category: Animals & Nature::Natural History; Natural History & Resources; ISBN: 0002191393. ISBN/EAN: 9780002191395.

Collins / BBC Books 230489 London 1990 0002199122 / 9780002199124 Hardcover Very Good Condition Very Good Phenomenal colour photographs form the cornerstone of Attenborough's new book which, along with its companion TNT TV series, picks up where the first two left off. Life on earth traced the development of animal life from its beginnings, and The living planet concentrated on how the environment shapes the bodies of animals. Now Attenborough examines how animals use those bodies how they behave and why. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or. 320 pages. Dust Jacket price-clipped.

Frogs, David Badgwer
24 David Badgwer Frogs
Barnes & Noble Books 235378 New York 1997 0760706050 / 9780760706053 Hardcover Very Good Condition Very Good John Netherton [Photographs] Frogs and toads fascinate us for many reasons. Frogs sport a dazzling array of colors and markings--some for camouflage, others to warn away predators. Adults also vary a good deal in size, from a tiny Brazilian frog (under one-half inch) to the West African goliath frog (almost sixteen inches), and they exhibit similar diversity in body shape, from the slender tree frogs and narrow-waisted "true frogs" to the stout-bodied roads and buxom burrowing frogs. "Frogs" showcases over fifty of the world's most fascinating frogs. While some of the frogs and toads included in this book will be recognized by readers, others will certainly be new. This is understandable, since there are over 3,950 species worldwide. Frog families such as tree frogs, toads, poison frogs, horned frogs, and bullfrogs, are shown with photographs to distinguish the different species. In "Frogs," John Netherton's brilliant photos are paired with David Badger's easy-to-read, non-technical text, pointing out the characteristics that make the frogs so unique and interesting. This four-color reference book gives great detail about the physical characteristics of frogs, and their behavior. From their skin, to their senses of hearing, sight, and taste, to their unique style of communication--croaking, singing, and chirping, all of the traits that make frogs special are described in detail. Their reproductive habits and springing jumps are shown with visual references. 145 pages. Illustrator: John Netherton [Photographs]. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos.
