Endangered butterflies that persist in the presence of bombs and beavers; microbes and other “monsters” at home; spiders and people’s fear of the eight-legged creatures: These are among the topics College of Agriculture and Life Sciences biologist Rob Dunn explores in his latest popular essays.

The stories originally appeared in Smithsonian Online, the Huffington Post, BBC Wildlife Magazine and the Smithsonian Magazine, but you can read the essays, and others, on Dr. Dunn’s website.
