This month, the Animal Guide Membership is studying An Immense World: How Animal Sense Reveal the Hidden Realms Round Us by Ed Yong. 

The cover of An Immense World by Ed Yong has a green background and shows a monkey looking up at a butterfly

From the writer, 

“The Earth teems with sights and textures, sounds and vibrations, smells and tastes, electrical and magnetic fields. However each type of animal, together with people, is enclosed inside its personal distinctive sensory bubble, perceiving however a tiny sliver of our immense world.

In An Immense World, Ed Yong coaxes us past the confines of our personal senses, permitting us to understand the skeins of scent, waves of electromagnetism, and pulses of strain that encompass us. We encounter beetles which are drawn to fires, turtles that may monitor the Earth’s magnetic fields, fish that fill rivers with electrical messages, and even people who wield sonar like bats. We uncover {that a} crocodile’s scaly face is as delicate as a lover’s fingertips, that the eyes of an enormous squid advanced to see glowing whales, that vegetation thrum with the inaudible songs of courting bugs, and that even easy scallops have advanced imaginative and prescient. We be taught what bees see in flowers, what songbirds hear of their tunes, and what canines odor on the road. We take heed to tales of pivotal discoveries within the area, whereas trying forward on the many mysteries that stay unsolved.

Humorous, rigorous, and suffused with the enjoyment of discovery, An Immense World takes us on what Marcel Proust referred to as “the one true voyage . . . to not go to unusual lands, however to own different eyes.””
