Keeping All the Pieces: Perspectives on Natural History and the Environment. Whit Gibbons, Eugene P. Odum

“Whit Gibbons takes his readers on a journey that puts them in touch with the intricacies and wonders of the natural world, making it easy to understand why and how we must all become involved in keeping all the pieces.” JAY D. HAIR, PRESIDENT, NATIONAL WILDLIFE FEDERATION
“Here we have natural history at its best, with a human message.”

With the background of a scholar and the infectious enthusiasm of a child on a field trip, Whit Gibbons explores the many pieces that support our environment. Whether describing caterpillar disguises, fish that produce antifreeze, the mutual reliance of rhinoceroses and Trewia trees, or the origins of tumbleweed, he affirms the delicate and intricate biological relationships between species and encourages a deeper knowledge of our natural world.

With compelling anecdotes and witty narrative, Gibbons celebrates the beaiity of biodiversity and laments the tragedy of “ecovoids,” a term he coined to describe missing components of our environment that we wish were still present but can never be replaced. Keeping All the Pieces offers guidelines for concerned citizens who want to be involved in preserving the world’s wildlife. Gibbons provides an overview of the goals of various environmental organizations and the processes for enacting environmental regulations nationally and internationally.
