Returning to Inquiry tonight is the acclaimed scientist and writer BERND HEINRICH. Tonight he talks abut his new book THE HOMING INSTINCT: MEANING AND MYSTERY IN ANIMAL MIGRATION. This is a wonderful book that explores how different animals (including people), birds and invertebrates create homes and how they manage to find their way back home. Tune in and learn about beelining, how chestnut trees are spread through the forest and about a spider that made her home in Bernd’s home, right above his desk. Bernd Heinrich is one of the great writers in the study of natural history, tune in and find out why.
