Predators of the Undergrowth by Emanuele Biggi and Francesco Tomasinelli was published in Italy in late 2017 by Daniele Marson Editore (Italian title “Predatori del Microcosmo”). It features Biggi's superb macro photography which reveals the fascinating behaviour of the world's insects, spiders, reptiles and amphibians and their struggle for survival, from salamanders and freshwater crabs in Italy to giant spiders in South America, cave-dwelling centipedes and cockroaches in Borneo, and the bizarre geckos and chameleons of Madagascar.
