Death on Earth: Adventures in Evolution and Mortality

This critically acclaimed book from author Jules Howard delves into one of life's inevitable realities, framed in the context of evolutionary biology.


Death on Earth humorously explores the playing field of the grim reaper, and looks at life’s successes and failures in a hostile, predatory world.


Introducing animals with very different longevities, Howard explores morality in the context of natural selection. We come across animals that can live for centuries, and those that only live for a few hours as adults.


Death on Earth explores the impact that death can have on the living, and probes our understanding of this oldest and most profound truth.
