9780143127062: Nature's Nether Regions : What the Sex Lives of Bugs, Birds and Beasts Tell Us About Evolution, Biodioversity and Ourselves

What's the easiest way to tell species apart? Check their genitals. Researching private parts was long considered taboo, but scientists are now beginning to understand that the wild diversity of sex organs across species can tell us a lot about evolution. Nature's Nether Regions joyfully demonstrates that the more we learn about the multiform private parts of animals, the more we understand our own unique place in the great diversity of life.
