My father and I spent many hours collecting, identifying and studying local insects, amphibians and reptiles. If this is biophilia, then I certainly possess it, and it is my hope that others will experience it too.

Grzimek's Animal Life Encyclopedia, 17 Volumes Set 2nd Edition...

It took my breath away. The existence of DNA, an elegant, twisted organic molecule that is the building block of all life, is perhaps the best evidence that all living organisms on this planet share a common ancestry.

I remember waking one morning and, there, perched on the tip of the stick was a large moth, slowly moving its delicate, light green wings in the early morning sunlight. In fact, there is a Grzimeks animal life encyclopedia need for a deeper understanding and appreciation of our natural world. I brought the cocoon back to my room and placed it in a jar on top of my dresser.

No one knows exactly how many distinct organisms inhabit our planet, but more than 5 million different species of animals and plants could exist, ranging from microscopic algae and bacteria to gigantic elephants, redwood trees and blue whales. To my inexperienced eyes, it was one of the most beautiful things I had ever seen. Species extinction has always been part of the evolutionary history of life; some organisms adapt to changing circumstances and some do not.

Our ancient connection to Grzimeks animal life encyclopedia living world may drive our curiosity, and perhaps also explain our seemingly insatiable desire for information about animals and nature. I had collected a cocoon in a field near my home in early spring. I spent my early childhood in rural Iowa where nature was an integral part of my life. Yet, each time I encounter a new and unusual animal or habitat my heart still races with the same excitement of my youth.

I knew it was a moth, but did not know which species. My heart was pounding with the excitement of new knowledge as I ran to share the discovery with my parents. Our own personal awakenings to the natural world are as diverse as humanity itself.

It was a luna moth! Yet, throughout this wonderful tapestry of living creatures, there runs a single thread: Deoxyribonucleic acid or DNA. The revision of these volumes could not come at a more opportune time. Many species are classified as threatened or endangered, and the situation is expected to get much worse before it gets better.

These experiences had a significant impact on my early intellectual and even spiritual development. Book Preface Earth is teeming with life. Download Ebook Read Now File Type Upload Date. One event I can recall most vividly.
