Description

Charting the unique relationship between humans and animals and how certain species have been instrumental in the development of our understanding of the evolution of the natural world, this title explores the role animals have played in our culture and history. Often taken for granted, the produce and work of animals have not only met man’s basic need for food and clothing, the study of animals has allowed us to develop scientifically and culturally. “Fifty Animals that Changed the Course of History” is a fascinating exploration of the important role animals have played in our changing world, from the honeybee to the scarab beetle.
