A journey of discovery through the ins and outs of reproduction in the animal kingdom.

One thousand million years ago, a huge revolution occurred on Earth--sex happened for the first time. From that moment on, the world became ever more colourful and bizarre. Animal life rings, bleeds, and howls with sex. It's everywhere. Right now warring hordes are locking horns, preening feathers, rampaging lustfully across the savanna, questioning the fidelity of the ones they love. A million females choose; a billion penises ejaculate (or snap off); a trillion sperm battle, block, and tackle. Sex made planet Earth, well, sexy.

Writing in a brilliantly engaging style, biologist Jules Howard leads readers on a guided tour of the how and why of sex on Earth, in all its diversity. From sperm wars to cuckoldry, hermaphrodites, virgin births, "exploding" penises, and mallards' "boobytrapped" vaginas, Sex on Earth explores and celebrates the wonders and peculiarities of animal reproduction.


JULES HOWARD is a zoologist, nature writer, and blogger (juleshoward.blogspot.co.uk/). He is a regular contributor to the Guardian, the Independent, and BBC Wildlife. This is his first book. Howard lives in London, England.
