About this book
Fascinating exploration of the mimicry and camouflage in the natural world, science, art and warfare.
Discovered in the 1850s by the young English naturalists Henry Walter Bates and Alfred Russel Wallace in the Amazonian rainforest, the phenomenon of mimicry was seized upon as the first independent validation of Darwin's theory of natural selection. This book tells the story of mimicry and camouflage in science, art, warfare and the natural world.
