Supernavigators: Exploring the Wonders of How Animals Find Their Way

ISBN: 1615195378 | 2019 | EPUB | 320 Pages | 3 MB

A globetrotting voyage of discovery celebrating the navigational superpowers of animals-by land, sea, and sky

Publisher's note: Supernavigators was published in the UK under the title Incredible Journeys.

Animals plainly know where they're going, but how they get there has remained surprisingly mysterious-until now.

In Supernavigators, award-winning author David Barrie catches us up on the cutting-edge science. Here are astounding animals of every stripe: Dung beetles that steer by the light of the Milky Way. Ants and bees that rely on patterns of light invisible to humans. Sea turtles and moths that fi nd their way using Earth's magnetic field. Humpback whales that swim thousands of miles while holding a rocksteady course. Birds that can locate their nests on a tiny island after crisscrossing an ocean.

The age of viewing animals as unthinking drones is over. As Supernavigators makes clear, a stunning array of species command senses and skills-and arguably, types of intelligence-beyond our own. Weaving together interviews with leading animal behaviorists and the groundbreaking discoveries of Nobel Prize-winning scientists, David Barrie reveals these wonders in a whole new light.
