Kingfisher Encyclopedia of Life

This unique book is a treasure-trove of information about the natural world, presented in a truly original and attention-grabbing way. Instead of being arranged in the usual categories – plants, fungi, invertebrates, fish, reptiles, birds and mammals – species are arranged by how long they live. The approach taken is one of objective wonder – from astonishment that the mayfly lives its full life in less time than it takes to read this book, to the awe inspired by trees over a thousand years old
