Our subject this month is Winter World : The Ingenuity of Animal Survival. Award–winning writer and biologist Bernd Heinrich’s book is an intimate, accessible and eloquent illumination of animal survival in winter. Unlike humans, animals are adaptable to an amazing range of conditions. From flying squirrels to grizzly bears, torpid turtles to insects with antifreeze, the animal kingdom relies on some staggering evolutionary innovations to survive the coldest season.
