The earth moved : on the remarkable achievements of earthworms

Image of item

First paperback edition.

The author of From the Ground Up introduces the earthworm, looking at its impact on the ecosystem and its amazing abilities to plough soil, fight plant diseases, and absorb dangerous pollutants. Reprint. Amy Stewart takes us on a subterranean adventure and introduces us to the humble earthworm. It's small, spineless, and blind, but its effect on the ecosystem is profound, moving Charles Darwin to devote his last years to studying its remarkable attributes and achievements. Stewart talks to oligochaetologists who have devoted their lives to unearthing the complex web of life beneath our feet, and observes the thousands of worms in her own garden.
