More About the Author

Dr. Piotr (Peter) Naskrecki is a Polish-born entomologist, photographer and author, currently at the Museum of Comparative Zoology, Harvard University (Cambridge, MA, USA.) His research focuses on the evolution of sound-producing insects, and the theory and practice of nature conservation.

As a writer, Piotr strives to promote appreciation and conservation of invertebrate animals - insects, arachnids, and their kin - by capturing both their beauty and roles as vital, often critically important members of the Earth's ecosystems. He is the author of over 30 scientific, peer-reviewed papers and book chapters, and his photographs and nature writing have been published in a number of national and international publications, including The Smithsonian Magazine, Natural History, National Wildlife, National Geographic, BBC Wildlife Magazine, BBC Knowledge, Terre Sauvage, Time magazine, Ranger Rick, and many others.

Format: Paperback
Even if you aren't a member of a conservation biology institute or taking classes in biodiversity and biological sciences, you will find this book extremely lovely. I know that I never heard of RAP until I accidentally stumbled upon this awesome coffee table centerpiece. I can't explain the amount of times we've had friends over and this was an easy ice breaker. Even our friends kids would pick it up, if nothing else for the immense amount of beautiful pictures. This book takes you on a journey of places one can only imagine visiting and finding species never seen by anyone before. If you like fun reading and great pictures this could be an awesome book for personal getaways into new places or to just read with your young ones to teach them about the fauna of the world. Couldn't be happier to have stumbled upon this!
