Résumé(s) : 
La 2e de couv. indique : "For James Barilla and his family, the dream of transforming their Columbia, South Carolina, backyard into a haven for wildlife evoked images of kids catching grasshoppers by day and fireflies at night, of digging up potatoes and picking strawberries. When they signed up with the National Wildlife habitat, it felt like pushing back, in however small a way, againt the tide of bad news about vanishing species, changing climate, and dying coral reefs. Then the animals started to arrive, and Barilla soon discovered the complexities ( and possible mayhem ) of merging human wqith animal habitats.What are the limits of coexistence, he wondered ? To find out, Barilla set out across continents to explore cities where populations of bears, monkeys, marmosets, and honeybees live alongside human residents. My Backyard Jungle brings these unique stories together, making Barilla's yard the centerpiece of a meditation on possibilities for coexistence with animas in an increasing urban world. Not since Gerald Durell penned My Family and Other Animals have readers encountered a naturalist with such a gift for storytelling and such an open heart toward all things wild."
