Historias ecológicas

Más allá de los límites de nuestra imaginación, aún queda un vasto campo de inspiración que crece al ritmo de la evolución, un paisaje de infinitas sorpresas que se muestra inconmensurable ante nosotros en el mundo de los pequeños. Seguimos conociendo poco a poco el primer millón de esa fuente sustancial de formas y funciones, de ese laboratorio que parece que ya lo ha probado todo.
