Malcolm Edmunds has been a life-long Quaker with a fascination for natural history. He studied zoology at Oxford and stayed on for his doctorate on defensive behaviour of sea-slugs. Following his marriage to fellow zoologist Janet Holmes in January 1963 he worked for 10 years at the University of Ghana where his children were born. He returned to UK at Preston Polytechnic which became the University of Central Lancashire and on retirement he was Emeritus Professor. He now lives at Otley in Yorkshire.

His 100 research publications include studies of sea slugs, mimetic butterflies, ant-mimicking spiders, praying mantids, hawkmoth caterpillars and mimetic hoverflies. His first book Defence in Animals  was published in 1974, and in 2004 with two colleagues he edited Wildlife of Lancashire .

Many of his numerous articles for the Quaker journal The Friend are reprinted in this book where he explores animal behaviour and other features of the natural world and draws ethical lessons from them relevant for us humans.
