Overview
A globetrotting voyage of discovery celebrating the navigational gifts of animals; from whales and lobsters to birds and beetles--and many more

In Supernavigators, award-winning author David Barrie takes us on a tour of the cutting-edge science of animal navigation, where scientists are unraveling how creatures as various as butterflies, birds, crustaceans, fish, reptiles, and even people find their way.

Weaving interviews with leading experts on animal behavior with the groundbreaking discoveries of Nobel Prize-winning neuroscientists, Barrie introduces astounding animals of every stripe: Dung beetles that steer by the light of the Milky Way. Ants and bees that navigate using patterns of light invisible to humans. Sea turtles, spiny lobsters, and moths that find their way using Earth's magnetic field. Salmon that return to their birthplace by following their noses. Baleen whales that swim thousands of miles while holding a rock-steady course, and birds that can locate their nests on a tiny island after crisscrossing an ocean.

There's a stunning diversity of animal navigators out there, often using senses and skills we humans don't have access to ourselves. For the first time, Supernavigators reveals these wonders in a whole new light.
