Central to this book is an appreciation of how nature is integral to the everyday objects in our lives. Dr Mark Everard, an ecosystems scientist and aquatic biologist, considers a diversity of ‘everyday things’, including fascinating facts about their ecological origins – from the tea we drink, to things we wear, read and enjoy, to the ecology of communities and space flight, and the important roles played by ‘unappealing creatures’ such as slugs and wasps.

The Ecology of Everyday Things pulls back the veil of our familiarity on a range of ‘everyday things’ that surround us, and which we perhaps take too much for granted … [a] key into the magic world of the everyday.

Mark Everard invites us to look a little closer at, and think a little harder about, the natural architecture of our cultural selves … instructive and entertaining … Everard is a master communicator.
