Join us as we invite the chemical element copper to explain its various, and sometimes contrary, biological roles in its own voice. Across the living spectrum from microbes to macrobes, we see the micro-mastery of an electron-juggling metal that can catalyse, energise, sanitise, oxidise, and antioxidise – provided that it remains in vanishingly small amounts.

In 1648, Robert Herrick published his life’s work in a volume of poetry called 'Hesperides: Or, The Works Both Humane & Divine'. Hesperides contains 1,400 poems; 74 of them mention a woman called Julia, which prompts an oft asked question: who was Julia? Nothing is known about her. This book examines Herrick’s life and poetry and comes to a startling conclusion as to the real identity of Julia.
Endless Joke

Endless Joke is a collection. It's funny. It's irritating. It's the book you never realised you needed. But you do. If you want to stay safe (and sane) between the twists and turns and death throes of the old publishing monster and the anarchic new killing fields of epublishing, this book will help in that regard. It's equal parts passion, humour, angst & a kind of bewildered, contemplative awe.

Join us as we compare and contrast the honey badger and the wolverine zoologically, showing that their evolutionary convergence is an accident of two disparate environments – the predator-beset Old World and the climatically forbidding far North – both offering a niche to creatures toughened almost to a fault.

Join us as we invite a family of deceptively leafless trees and shrubs to review and interpret its life strategy in its own voice.

Join us as we compare a wide range of bony fishes with respect to a body part that is among the least free-swimming in humans: the pelvis. While fishes are surprisingly consistent in also possessing a pelvis, they take a surprisingly slippery approach to where this should be located – in some cases sliding it as far forward as the lower jaw.

Join us as we compare and contrast the sargassumfish with the four-winged flying fish, seemingly incompatible forms closely coexisting far out at sea. The first has fins resembling hands and the second has fins resembling wings, but both depend on a ‘seaweed’ that – floating freely – seems the most uncoupled of all from its evolutionary moorings.

Join us as we compare and contrast rock hyraxes and rock-wallabies, paradoxically divergent boulder-dwellers, in what appear to be mirror-image habitats west and east of the Indian Ocean. What makes all the difference to their evolution, we suggest, has been the constant pressures from predators in Africa – particularly those underestimated baboons.

Join us as we compare and contrast sunfish and oarfish, which have shapes so disparate as to hail from different planets. Not only is the ocean sunfish the heaviest and the oarfish the longest of all bony fishes, but both have virtually reinvented the concept of the fish tail – and perhaps how to swim in the first place.
