Few people have observed as many animals – common and exotic – as accomplished scientist and well-known author Josef H. Reichholf: birds which dive into waterfalls; ants which build underground mushroom farms; jaguars which used to live in Italy and the Balcans before they trekked to South America. Based on the rich variety of his experiences and research, he developed his own much-discussed theories on ecology, evolution, and environmental protection. After half a century, he looks back on his life and takes stock: Nowhere in nature is there an ideal or even a single best state of affairs. Stability means stagnation and leads to collapse. Life is constant change, and nothing stays as it once was.
