Among the Islands

characters Among the Islands 107 summary ´ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ↠ Tim Flannery On his ground breaking fieldwork With accounts of discovering naming and sometimes eating animal species new to science and stories of historic expeditions and colourful local customs he takes us on an enthralling journey through some of the most diverse and spectacular environments on Earth. This really should have been a 5 star but the writing was so odd and at times confusing that it uickly dropped from that levelFlannery has over the past two three decades studied mammals in many of the Pacific islands By mammals he means rats and bats some uite large and some uite small That part is really fascinating particularly when the different species are described who knew that bats could have orange fur The problem comes when the descriptions are truncated assuming that readers know what a wallaby looks like among other species The travels and adventures part is also oddly truncated with several trips elided the timeline isn t always clear and sometimes there needs to be clarity about who and when It also doesn t help that this needs a firm editorial hand cleaning up some of the convoluted sentences and pronouns Here s an example we all know that landmasses move and that there are different reasons for them moving plates shifting volcanic action etc But despite a long explanation about how species evolution can either lead to dwarfs or giants there s nothing about timelines and when he then talks about islands that used to be joined recentlyThis could based on the writing have been a 2 but the mammal hunting and adventures kept it from dropping that lowARC provided by publisher

characters Among the Islands 107 summary ´ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ↠ Tim Flannery A fabulous account of hunting trapping and recording mammal species in the Pacific Islands Twenty five years ago a zoologist from the Australian Museum in Sydney set off to research the mammals of the Pacific Islands Starting with a survey of one of the most inaccessible islands in Melanesia. This book narrates the author s work exploring and documenting the small mammals on remote islands near New Guinea He combines travel narrative with scientific explanation in a clear entertaining way This book is pretty light on the scientific information but is written with humor and the natural descriptions of truly uniue flora and fauna really kept my interest I would recommend if for people who like both travel and popular science and who enjoy a combination of the two I can t overstate the addition of humor to this book I found myself laughing out loud at points
