The Natural History Book The Ultimate Visual Guide to Everything on Earth

AUTHOR: DK

DK's biggest natural history book is given a fresh update. The only book to offer a complete visual survey of all Earth's kingdoms of life, plus rocks and minerals, it remains the benchmark of illustrated natural history reference

A monumental and beautiful guide to Earth's wildlife and natural history - its rocks, minerals, animals, plants, fungi, and microorganisms - this landmark of reference publishing has been extended and updated.

In the 11 years since the book was released, thousands of new species have been identified, and new revelations have redrawn the tree of life. Already featuring galleries of more than 5,000 species, The Natural History Book now includes discoveries such as the olinguito (the "kitty bear" of the Andean cloud forest), and a new species of deep-sea Bolosoma glass sponge photographed by the NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer. And it has reorganized the groups of living things to reflect the latest scientific understanding. All this ensures that this, the only book to offer a complete visual survey of all kingdoms of life, remains the benchmark of illustrated natural history reference.

Written by a worldwide team of natural history experts, The Natural History Book is the perfect addition to every family bookshelf, as well as an ideal gift for any nature lover. From granites to grape vines, from microbes to mammals,
The Natural History Book is the ultimate celebration of the diversity of the natural world.
