One of the most fascinating books I've ever read. It covers a vast span of biodiversity, with lots of detail, so be prepared to plow through this book slowly. It taught me a lot about conservation, natural pesticide, and other elements of biodiversity. You don't need to be super science-y or know anything about ecology to enjoy this book!

... more to come when I finish.
