Publisher Description

“An extraordinary book…. With clarity and charm [Dunn] takes the reader into the overlap of medicine, ecology, and evolutionary biology to reveal an important domain of the human condition.” —Edward O. Wilson, author of Anthill and The Future of Life

Biologist Rob Dunn reveals the crucial influence that other species have upon our health,our well-being, and our world in The WildLife of Our Bodies—a fascinating tour through the hidden truths of nature and codependence. Dunn illuminates the nuanced, often imperceptible relationships that exist between homo sapiens and other species, relationships that underpin humanity’s ability to thrive and prosper in every circumstance. Readers of Michael Pollan’s The Omnivore’s Dilemma will be enthralled by Dunn’s powerful, lucid exploration of the role that humankind plays within the greater web of life on Earth.

Asymptotic Hypochondriac ,

The kind of cross functional analysis that bridges worthy science with other worthy science

I greatly enjoyed Rob Dunn's examination of evolution in the context all the other species involved in the process. His prose is accessible and engaging. The research is thorough and well documented with a hefty chapter of footnotes detailing modern explorations that escape the pop science headlines of Internet culture. The concluding chapter offers something that smells like hope after the stink of doom that marks most screeds on environmental futures
