Reviews
"A truly fine piece of work, one that should be on the reading list of all students and practitioners of evolutionary biology."--Geerat J. Vermeij, author of The Evolutionary World: How Adaptation Explains Everything from Shells to Civilization
"Nature Strange and Beautiful is an exceptionally comprehensive and clear portrait of the origin and functioning of ecological communities, founded on Egbert Leigh's career in tropical biology. The photographs by Christian Ziegler and other detailed drawings add to the book's richness and appeal."--Douglas Futuyma, Stony Brook University
"Not just a linear narrative of evolutionary history - but a wonderful walk through the world. Leigh demonstrates how the evolutionary lens enriches all of human experience and deepens our appreciation for the strange and beautiful world in which we live."--Noel Michele Holbrook, Harvard University
