Human Wildlife That Lives on UsBook - 2002
In Human Wild Life we can, for the first time, see the amazing creatures that live on our skin and in our bodies. Within our bodies is a world as complex and beautiful as the one outside it. A delicate, newly discovered ecosystem opens up before our eyes with astonishing photos and startling information about our most intimate neighbours. Dr. Robert Buckman takes us on a journey deep into ourselves to show us hundreds of species of animals in their homes - our organs, systems, and skin. The stunning photography of Human Wild Life, along with its revolutionary use of microscopy, introduces us to a world we have never seen before, a captivating view of the sometimes gorgeous, sometimes terrifying animals that live within us. This new Key Porter book shows the world its first close-up look at the lives of the hundreds of creatures that co-exist with humans in and on our bodies. A six-part television series called 'Human Wild Life', which is written, directed and narrated by Dr. Buckman, will be released on the Discovery Channel in October 2002.
