SIr David Attenborough - life in the undergrowth - new book and tv series by Diamond on 23 August 2005 4:42pm
 
Life in the Undergrowth - David Attenborough
ISBN: 0563522089

RRP: £20.00
Format: hardback
Publication date: 10 - Oct - 2005
Category: Natural History


David Attenborough reveals a secret universe it is teeming with life and is all around us, yet we never see it. It is the world of the very small, and it is a world of sex, drugs and violence.

Here David shows us not just bugs, beetles and creepy-crawlies, but scorpions and centipedes, mites and mantids, spiders and dragonflies.

And not just life in the undergrowth, but the dramatic battles between predator and prey that are happening in the corner of your living room and in your larder.

See magnificent spectacles: swarming antler moths; millions of desert locusts; a mountain of locusts.

For every pound of humans on Earth, there are 300 pounds of insects.

the new Tv series is due for transmission on BBC in the autumn too and sir David will be doing many book signings to accompany the series but i cant find one in london as yet but he is going to a book store no more than half an hour from me in novemeber - hooray i get to meet sir david for the second time - dont forget folks he commisioned MPFC and did a lot for Tv ie colour and BBC2!!
