Synopsis

Threads from the Web of Life Stories in Natural History by Stephen Daubert

In these stories, Steve Daubert pulls the reader into the mystery and immediacy of ecological processes - great moments in evolution, and you are there! From vanishing neon flying squids to dinosaur habitat upheavals by earthquake, each tale brings the reader into the moment to witness an episode of survival in the wild, first-hand. The book, wonderfully illustrated by the author's brother, includes chapter notes that document the scientific basis for each story and describe the controversies still surrounding some of them - a splendid resource for the curious and the imaginative of all ages.

Reviews

Highly recommended . . . The stories are as much enjoyable as they are informative. --Science Books & Films

About the Author

Stephen Daubert has followed a life-long interest in the natural world, which led him to pursue a career in scientific research; he is now retired from the University of California. His brother Christopher Daubert (the book's illustrator) chose an opposite course, following the arts; he is a Professor of Art at a California community college. Their two paths have swung back together in their collaboration to produce Threads from the Web of Life.
