Nature at Night
Nature at Night takes readers into the lives of some amazing, glowing animal and plant organisms that use the phenomena of bioluminescence; biofluorescence or ultraviolet light as part of their survival arsenal.
Nature at Night goes into the dark corners of forest, jungle and ocean to find organisms that use luminescence for camouflage, mating, warding off predators or attracting prey. One of the organisms is not an animal but is vegetation: Foxfire Fungi glow to attract animals that will eat them and spread their pores through their scat and so help the plant to reproduce.
The book includes well-known creatures, but also animals which, it has been recently discovered, use luminescence. Readers will learn about each organism, its biology, what type of luminescence it uses; and how/where it lives and survives.
"Did You Know?" insets share unusual facts, focus on a topic, or display incredible photographs, like curtains of shining Glowworms hanging from the ceiling of Waipu Cave in New Zealand.
Young readers will thrill at the striking cover and spend many an hour under the bedsheets marveling at the glowing illustrations.
