Amy Stewart:

The Earth Moved: On the Remarkable Achievements of Earthworms - Paperback

ISBN: 1565124685

[SR: 71335], Paperback, [EAN: 9781565124684], Algonquin Books, Algonquin Books, Book, [PU: Algonquin Books], Algonquin Books, In The Earth Moved, Amy Stewart takes us on a journey through the underground world and introduces us to one of its most amazing denizens. The earthworm may be small, spineless, and blind, but its impact on the ecosystem is profound. It ploughs the soil, fights plant diseases, cleans up pollution, and turns ordinary dirt into fertile land. Who knew? In her witty, offbeat style, Stewart shows that much depends on the actions of the lowly worm. Charles Darwin devoted his last years to the meticulous study of these creatures, praising their remarkable abilities. With the august scientist as her inspiration, Stewart investigates the worm's subterranean realm, talks to oligochaetologists―the unsung heroes of earthworm science―who have devoted their lives to unearthing the complex life beneath our feet, and observes the thousands of worms in her own garden. From the legendary giant Australian worm that stretches to ten feet in length to the modest nightcrawler that wormed its way into the heart of Darwin's last book to the energetic red wigglers in Stewart's compost bin, The Earth Moved gives worms their due and exposes their hidden and extraordinary universe. This book is for all of us who appreciate Mother Nature's creatures, no matter how humbl, 13529, Ecology, 13469, Biological Sciences, 75, Science & Math, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 3049111, Invertebrates, 13563, Zoology, 13469, Biological Sciences, 75, Science & Math, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 171225, Nature Writing & Essays, 14452, Nature & Ecology, 75, Science & Math, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books
