Through a naturalist’s eyes

"My education in zoology was based on comparative anatomy, The archetypal essay title was 'Compare and contrast the annelids and arthropods'. My invertebrate textbook and 'bible', known as BEPS (authors: Borradaile, Eastman, Potts & Saunders), was illustrated with simple line drawings of animals and parts of animals. We learned ven/ little about how these animals lived, and it was a revelation, when my father and I were writing an enormous Encyclopaedia ofAnimal Life in the 19605, to find that my textbook invertebrates led such interesting lives. Nowadays you can see them performing on television."
