The Time Nature Keeps

Regular price $24.95

An infographic journey of discovery through the natural rhythms across the plant and animal kingdoms

How long does it take for lichens to grow where pollution is reducing? How fast do viruses spread in towns versus the countryside and why? How far do different birds migrate, and how long does it take them? Do dogs need more sleep than humans? How long does it take an immortal jellyfish to die? The graphic number line is a remarkably powerful pattern that explains much of our world, and throughout The Time Nature Keeps it visually maps the amounts of time bounded by growth, distance, age, reproduction, sleep, death, and other key behaviors. As these illuminating infographics make clear, there’s an astoundingly wide range of natural rhythms out there, and our fellow species are counting on us to protect our fragile planet—so we can all march to the beat of our own drums.
