A Guide to the Flora and Fauna of the World

A Guide to the Flora and Fauna of the World seeks to document and reflect on the myriad ways in which human action and intervention
 are slowly altering the natural world. The guide presents a catalogue of curious creatures and life forms that have evolved in often unexpected ways to cope with the stresses 
and pressures of a changed world. Other organisms documented in the series are the results of human intervention, mutations engineered
 to serve various interests and purposes ranging from scientific research to the desire for ornamentation. Several specimens in this project are based
 on fact; others are based on proposals, hypotheses, and papers written by scientists. The line between these two is often an indistinct one,
 as scientific advances within the last half-century have made possible what was previously believed to be impossible.
