The previous owner has certainly very much enjoyed reading this book more than once, therefore please be aware there will be some creasing on the spine or slight shelf wear. If it's been in their collection for some time, say years old or more, some pages might be discoloured and there may be other minor age blemishes, but that won't affect its readability.

Product description


It's about time someone wrote a genuinely readable book about biodiversity. Thanks goodness for Ken Thompson, who has done it with a rare mixture of biological mastery, good common sense and writer's flair. Essential reading. --Mark Carwardine, BBC zoologist

Plain-talking and thought-provoking, at times controversial, Ken Thompson's take on biodiversity doesn't leave you the option of remaining neutral about one of the most important issues of the 21st century. --John Spicer, Professor of Marine Biology and author of Biodiversity: a beginner's guide.

About the Author

Dr Ken Thompson recently retired as Senior Research Fellow and Honorary Senior Lecturer of the Department of Animal and Plant Sciences at the University of Sheffield. He is the author of several books, including The Book of Weeds, An Ear to the Ground: Understanding your garden and No Nettles Required: The reassuring truth about wildlife gardening, and co-author of The Ecology of Seeds.
