This beautiful full color publication is an excellent introductory guide to a widely unnoticed universe – the minute animals called invertebrates that live in the oak woodland ecosystem in California. This fascinating world is home to a vast number of tiny creatures that provide an essential link in the health of our native California Oaks – a single acre of oak woodland may be home to 10 to 100 million individual invertebrates.
Among the invertebrate animals explored in this publication are the California Oak Worm, the Filbert Weevil and the Filbert Worm, and the Tarantula Hawk. Also explored is the human impact on this delicate ecosystem.
This is an excellent learning tool for anyone who cares about our California Oaks and wants to know more about this important ecosystem.
