More detailed information about many of the stories related here (and of a good many others) can be found in my 1993 book, The Inadequate Environment, and its 1150 references to the ecological literature. Since 1993 scientists have published many new stories, and I have incorporated a lot of them into this book. But they can be found only in the scientific journals. The reader who wants to delve more deeply will have to go directly to those journals. To aid those who wish to do so, I have listed a selection of articles, including some not discussed in the text, which will enable them to follow up more recent work in the topic of each chapter.
