Pyramids of Life - Illuminations of Nature's Fearful Symmetry

By John Reader, Harvey Croze

J. B. Lippincott, Philadelphia, USA. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good. Whatever the outward appearance, nothing in nature is entirely random. There is a natural law through which Harvey Croze and John Reader have identified pyramids of life, relationships which bind together many different species of animals and plants. These pyramids or patterns are repeated a thousand times over as basic forces which determine the order of life on earth. Using the African ecosystem as its model, Croze and Reader’s book selects examples from every level of existence, and takes into account both the increasing interference of man in recent years and the emerging science of complex adaptive systems. It is a structured and fascinating exploration of the beauties and mysteries of the living world. Illustrated with more than three hundred photographs, Pyramids of Life is an indispensable guide for all those with an interest in ecology and conservation and a beautifully designed portrait of African wildlife and nature. 222 pages. Illustrated with black and white photographs. Foreword by Niko Tinbergen. 222 pages. Illustrated with black and white photographs. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos.
