We have taken four of these extraordinary settings and illustrated the connections for you.

Forests, grasslands, jungles and wetlands are complex habitats and the interplay between different organisms can mean that they are finely balanced: a small change in one part may have profound consequences for the whole ecosystem.

Understanding the connections is of obvious importance for the future, but there is a fascination in just looking at the natural world and marvelling at the way in which natural selection has shaped the interdependence of organisms.

So, why does the gecko need the giraffe? The Grasslands frieze reveals the answer.

You can access a PDF version by following the link above—it is a 23 MB download.
