Fables of the Amazon: Fun Lessons in Ecology

Natural history and ecology are fascinating and complex subjects. Fables of the Amazon make them a whole lot more fun.

Each of these 11 short stories is drawn from actual field observations made by the authors, and as such is scientifically accurate, often presenting little-known insight on the ecology and behaviour of its wildlife characters.

This comic is self-published, and was created in the early 2000s when my friend, mentor and field biologist colleague, Dr. Louise H. Emmons, suggested we collaborate on a completely different venture: a comic book of ecology. Drawing upon decades of field experience and her unique knowledge, Louise wrote most of the stories, and I did the artwork.
