Animals aren’t stupid

Author Fleur Daugey
Illustrator Émilie Vanvolsem

What's intelligence? A tricky question. It manifests in many forms, in many ways: verbal, emotional, practical, spatial. In animals, the ability to learn or invent a way of adapting to a new situation is one definition of intelligent behaviour. We gauge animals by their capacity to use their memory, a tool, or language. With masterful naturalist illustrations, this is an elegant, carefully documented work.

New dinosaurs

Illustrator Capucine Mazille

Dinosaurs were long thought to be clumsy, lumbering monsters. We thought their tails dragged on the ground and they were covered with scales... We now know that they came in all sizes, were very alert, highly active, and that their tails were raised for balance when they ran. What's more, they had feathers!
An indispensable work to bring our knowledge of dinosaurs up to date!

Little shocks and big earthquakes

Earth is the only planet that has earthquakes! There's a simple reason: it is the only planet with a fragmented crust that slowly travels on a layer of more-viscous material. When the tectonic plates rub against each other, they create pressures that get released little by little. This can result in minor shocks that no-one feels, or major earthquakes as if Godzilla were stomping through. So what can we do? Learn the simple things to do, put together an "earthquake kit" and keep an eye out for the next "big one".
