About the Author

Ken Preston-Mafham, author of the bugs and beetles, and spiders sections, is a naturalist with a special interest in insects, which he has been studying and photographing for some 25 years.  He is the author of many natural history titles, and his photographs have appeared in a host of books and magazines published worldwide.

Nigel Marven and Rob Harvey, co-authors of the snakes section, are based at the BBC's world famous Natural History Unit.  They make field trips to observe grass snakes and adders every spring, and keep North American species that adapt well to captivity.  Both are accomplished film producers making wildlife documentaries across the world.
