In this post, we will see the book Animal Travellers by Igor Akimushkin.
About the book
Igor Akimushkin is a Soviet biologist and science writer. He is the author of fascinating books about animals “Tracks of Mysterious Beasts”, “The Path of Legends”, “The Primates of the Sea”, “The Crocodile Has Friends, Too” — which are highly favourite with the readership, as well as several books for children. The “Animal Travellers” is a story of animal wanderers — four-footed, winged and finned — of where they walk, fly and swim, and how they take their bearings en route. The reader will learn about their amazing mechanisms for navigation, which help them in their travels—“echo sounders” and “radars”, “polaroids”, “physiological clock” and “sky compasses”, the intricate methods of “conversation” by a dance performed by honey-bees, and the latest hypotheses and discoveries by scientists studying the mysteries of migration.
Translated from the Russian by Yuri Shirokov, published by Mir in 1973.
