Nature's Nether Regions by Menno Schilthuizen
"I found this book really quite fascinating. It was both informative, educating, and hilarious. The author realized that while the study of animal sex parts is useful and important science, it's also really rather funny. One of my favorite lines wa..." Read more of this review »

Nature's Nether Regions by Menno Schilthuizen
"This book was a great, interesting, and witty read. Highly recommended, but as with all biological research, be prepared for animal experiments/dissections/etc. -- there's no other way to get some of this information, but that doesn't mean I have..." Read more of this review »

This was a one-of-a-kind book. What a great idea to celebrate that long naturalist's tradition of making notes in the field. The passion of the well-selected authors is tangible, and they manage to conjure up images of those best of times: ones spent ...more

“These constantly arriving foreign inhabitants form the first of at least four explanations for the high biodiversity urban naturalists are encountering in their cities. A second explanation is the fact that the places where people like to build their settlements, which then grow into cities, are often biologically rich areas to begin with.”
Menno Schilthuizen, Darwin Comes to Town: How the Urban Jungle Drives Evolution

“A third source of urban biological richness is, in fact, the loss of good-quality habitat immediately outside the city perimeter.”
Menno Schilthuizen, Darwin Comes to Town: How the Urban Jungle Drives Evolution

“The fourth and final explanation for the rich biodiversity of cities is the sheer diversity of habitat patches.”
