Abstract boundaries define the borders of Colorado, which suggests it could be a state without genuine identity. But Colorado sprawls across three major landforms, and its lifescapes help define two major junctures: where biological north meets biological south and where biological west meets biological east. From this emerges a fabulous wildlife diversity that gives Colorado a unique identity. So, what if Life itself became the destination for vacations? Where could you go? What could you find? How would you find it once there? And how do you get started? The answers all come alive in “Searching for Life in Colorado.”
Within Life's diversity a pattern of relatedness becomes apparent. But whether we speak of mollusks or mammals or wildflowers, some families have a single species living in Colorado. To look for them makes each a destination to be sought and engaged one at a time.
