Lushly illustrated with over 300 color plates, this volume
is a celebration of the beauty of natural history collections and the work of
curators dedicated to understanding and conserving our natural world.

Natural history museums are libraries of life. All Things
reveals some of the remarkable animals, plants, fossils, and
cultural heritage materials that make up the 40 million+ specimens and objects
of the Florida Museum of Natural History. With 10 chapters exploring diverse
themes including the collector's impulse, fields of adventure, remembering the
lost, and saving the imperiled, award-winning environmental journalist Heather
Dewar captures the vast scope of the museum's activities to document and
discover all forms of life on Earth. Profiles of pathbreaking curators explore
the excitement of generating new knowledge, from living in the field with
Komodo dragons to discovering new species and using cutting-edge technologies
to see and share collections worldwide.

Extraordinary color, form, pattern, and texture are revealed
in the stunning photography of Kristen B. Grace. Focusing on rare, beautiful,
and fascinating highlights from the collections, these images, along with their
compelling stories, will inspire those who love nature, science, museums, and
the thrill of discovery.
