The Wondrous Lives of Baby Animals and the Extraordinary Ways They Shape Our World

In Nursery Earth, researcher Danna Staaf invites readers into the sibling fields of ecology and developmental biology. The tiny, hidden lives that these scientists study in the lab and in the wild reveal some of nature's strangest workings. Our bias toward adult animals means these wonders have long gone under-researched. But for all kinds of animals, if we overlook their babies, we miss out on the most fascinating--and consequential--time in the lives of their species. Nursery Earth makes the case that these young creatures are not just beings in progress but beings in their own right.     280 pages  hc
