Eric Dinerstein, who is coming to Seattle to talk about his new book, The Kingdom of Rarities, details why when you look out your Seattle-area window, you are so much more likely to see a squirrel or a sparrow than a Mazama pocket gopher or a burrowing owl. In other words, why are some plants and animals rare and others common?
The Kingdom of Rarities is a fascinating tour of some of the most remote areas of the world and the species both animal and plant that inhabit them. I hope you will consider speaking with him about his work.
Dinerstein will be at Town Hall Seattle on April 29 to share his stories of rare species around the world—and in our Pacific Northwest backyards.
