In his new book, Lev Parikian, who is fast becoming one of Britain’s best loved nature writers, has turned his passion for nature and the world around us and his gift for inspiring wonder in his writing, to explore the how, why and when of flight in the animal kingdom. Flight has evolved four times through its evolutionary history of over more than 300 million years and it occurred in four distinct groups of animals: insects, pterosaurs, birds and bats. Lev has chosen fourteen species to chart and illustrate this remarkable history.
