520    "From Aztec accounts of hibernating hummingbirds to 
       contemporary television spectaculars, human encounters 
       with nature have long sparked wonder, curiosity and 
       delight. Written by leading scholars, this richly 
       illustrated volume offers a lively introduction to the 
       history of natural history, from the sixteenth century to 
       the present day. Covering an extraordinary range of topics,
       from curiosity cabinets and travelling menageries to 
       modern seed banks and radio-tracked wildlife, this volume 
       draws together the work of historians of science, of 
       environment and of art, museum curators and literary 
       scholars. The essays are framed by an introduction 
       charting recent trends in the field and an epilogue 
       outlining the prospects for the future. Accessible to 
       newcomers and established specialists alike, Worlds of 
       Natural History provides a much-needed perspective on 
       current discussions of biodiversity and an enticing 
       overview of an increasingly vital aspect of human 
       history."--|cPublisher's website
