The Story of Life and the Environment by Jo van As, Johann du Preez, Leslie Brown, and Nico Smit

The Story of Life and the Environment by Jo van As, Johann du Preez, Leslie Brown, and Nico Smit

"It’s beautifully illustrated with hundreds of pictures and diagrammes (look at the images taken by various different microscopes which appear on page 55: man, there’s so much to learn, and some of it we’re only just starting to see!). It’s the kind of book that you can dip into if you’ve got a passing interest in a subject – or it’s the kind that can start you on a journey of discovery that could lead you down any of a thousand highways of knowledge.

And it belongs in the guest library of every game lodge and nature reserve – and you’ll want to have one for yourself, too."

About the book:

The Story of Life & the Environment: An African Perspective is about the fragile miracle of life. It’s a celebration of the Earth’s rich and wonderful diversity – the species, populations, communities and ecosystems that surround us – and of nature’s resilience. It unpacks the three major ecosystems: fresh water, the ocean and the land, and the teeming life each supports on and around Africa. It discusses evolution and the ever-branching tree of life; how systems work, how populations expand and contract, and how all the elements of life interact. And it tells the story of how humans originated in Africa, and how we have evolved to become modern people.
