    Big Questions is the title of a new book and David Wilkinson is one of the two authors. The book explores the relationship between ecology and evolution by asking simple questions which have deep implications for both subject areas. Some of the questions are Why do we age?, Why is the land green (instead of being overgrazed by expanding populations of herbivores)?, Why is the sea blue (as opposed to being thick with plants, as most terrestrial habitats are)?, Why does life not consist of a single species?. The answers to these questions sometimes produce surprising ideas and information.
