 Our planet, the Earth, is the home of hundreds of thousands of living creatures. Life has permeated everywhere. It has ascended to the tops of the highest mountains, where there is hardly any air, and has hid­den beneath the expanses of the oceans, reconciling itself to the tremendous pressures exerted by the waters. Life has come to the hot, arid desert, and to the eternal ice of the Arctic Living creatures have adapted themselves to an absence of oxygen, to ever­lasting gloom, and to silence. But, wherever living organisms have settled, they need food which has to be distributed throughout their bodies, and they have to carry out the processes of metabolism. They also need to feel at home in their environment and start families to ensure the survival of the species.
This book will tell you about Nature’s amazing inventions which have made it possible for animals to po­ pulate our Earth, dealing as it does with live lanterns, radars, animal power stations, the mysteries of digestion, the automatism of the circulation of the blood, which is the body’s most perfect transportation system, the structure of photo- and audio-receptors the mysterious third eye, the secret workings of the
brain, and the peculiarities of reproduction.
Man has barely started to become familiar with Nature’s ingenious fantasy, but he is already getting to grips with the process of evolution and making usi of all Nature’s treasures and inventions. The aim o this book is to call the reader’s attention to the endless horizons of the science of living beings.
The book was published in 1973 and was translated from the Russian in Oleg Meshkov.
