The Time Nature Keeps

Regular price $24.95

An infographic journey of discovery through the natural rhythms across the plant and animal kingdoms

How long does it take for lichens to grow where pollution is reducing? How fast do viruses spread in towns versus the countryside and why? How far do different birds migrate, and how long does it take them? Do dogs need more sleep than humans? How long does it take an immortal jellyfish to die? The graphic number line is a remarkably powerful pattern that explains much of our world, and throughout The Time Nature Keeps it visually maps the amounts of time bounded by growth, distance, age, reproduction, sleep, death, and other key behaviors. As our natural world draws our attention to its plight, this fascinating book offers a calm, clear-thinking series of visual graphic explanations based around the ultimate objective measure—time.
