Description
Natalie Angier has taken great pains to learn her science from the molecule up. She knows all that scientists know-and sometimes more-about the power of symmetry in sexual relations, about the brutal courting habits of dolphins, about the grand deceit of orchids, and about the impact of female and male preferences on evolution. The Beauty of the Beastly takes the pulse of everything from the supple structure of DNA to the erotic ways of barn swallows, queen bees, and the endangered, otherworldly primate called the aye-aye. Few writers have ever covered so many facets of biology so evocatively in one book.
