Editorial Reviews

Review

“Digs into the subterranean strategies of prehistoric and contemporary animals, from insects to giant sloths and, to a lesser extent, humans. Offers subtle clues that help shift the dramatic narrative of prehistoric life forward. Underground warrens enable lungfish to survive drought, iguanas to weather hurricanes, and alligators sit out wildfires.”
-
The Economist

“An unbelievably engaging book.”
-
Choice

“Martin is an amiably erudite guide to burrowing fauna. Down the rabbit hole with Martin, Earth becomes one vast, ‘constantly evolving burrow system.’”
-
Nature

“Martin, known for having discovered an ancient burrowing dinosaur, examines the world underground and the evolutionary advantages attendant in knowing how to get around down there. A spry exercise in popular science. Can you dig it?”
-
Kirkus Reviews

“A great introduction and history that will fascinate ecominded conservationists and fossil hunters.”
-
Library Journal

“Martin writes with obvious glee and a humor that at times digs for the dad-jokes, but as a scholar he knows his stuff―many of the natural discoveries he describes are his own. Martin delivers something the casual reader will not expect: a real education in paleontology.
The Evolution Underground is a fun book of surprising depth.”
-
Shelf Awareness

“As a work of popular natural history,
The Evolution Underground is as delightful to read as it is informative about its subject. The Evolution Underground should find its way onto the reading tables and bookshelves of every naturalist, regardless of their specific areas of interest, for within its pages is a collection of some of the best explanations of a number of core ecological concepts that I’ve found anywhere. I give it my highest recommendation; I really think you’ll dig it.”

The Well-Read Naturalist
