They know exactly where they’re going and can navigate there at a level far beyond human talents. And they’re not alone. From blue whales to bison to bees, a vast array of creatures great and small perform incredible feats of navigation that are, quite simply, astonishing.
In Nature’s Compass, James L. Gould and Carol Grant Gould delve into the strategies and fail-safe backup systems animals use to accomplish their amazing feats of naviation. Packed with detail and insights from the frontiers of science, it lays bare one of the great mysteries of the animal world as never before.
