Wildscape: Trilling Chipmunks, Beckoning Blooms, Salty Butterflies, and other Sensory Wonders of Nature

by Nancy Lawson Author

Nature is incredible! Broken down into sections for each of the five senses, this book is your guide to exploring the vibrant world of animal and plant communication, using sensory abilities beyond our human ken. Through engaging descriptions and full-color photos on almost every page, you'll encounter the way bumblebees, butterflies, and flies navigate by scent, the way sparrows adapt their mating calls to human-made background noise, trees that grow faster when moose drool on them, pole-vaulting chipmunks, and more. Learning about the ways plants and animals find ways to overcome human-caused sensory pollution amazes, delights, and inspires.
