Delve into the eerie aspects of nature with this well-illustrated and enlightening book, unveiling the ghastly facets of life that thrive amidst us. From deadly poisonous frogs to plants that can drive one mad, from minuscule spiders residing on the skin to flies feasting on human flesh, and parasitic worms inhabiting human bodies to fungi annihilating frogs – discover these and more in the realm of Horrible Biology.

As you traverse through the chilling accounts, you’ll come to realize that biology – the study of living organisms, encompassing an estimated 8.5 million distinct species – holds dark secrets within its vast expanse. While not all of these species incite revulsion, a significant number indeed harbour attributes many would find appalling.

However, Horrible Biology isn’t solely a journey through grotesque organisms; it also honours lesser-known individuals whose contributions have significantly advanced the field of biology, enriching our comprehension of the living world, despite its grim constituents.

Arnold Lawson, a retired teacher, was the head of biology and head of the science faculty in a large comprehensive school in Sheffield. From an early age and living on the edge of the English Lake District with its outstanding landscapes and its diversity of flora and fauna, he has always had an interest in natural history. This interest has taken him from the forests of New Zealand to the Amazonian jungle of Brazil. His other interests include gardening, fell walking and landscape photography.
