The book is highly illustrated and includes an extensive list of references for further reading as well as a glossary. Tardi-what? Tardigrades, also known as water bears, are a little-studied phylum of animals. First discovered years ago, there are at least different species living on land, in fresh water and in the sea. The tardigrades represent a successful group of animals – in flourishing existence after about million years of evolution – that could hold keys to the patterns and mechanisms.

    The International Society of Tardigrade Hunters (ISTH) was founded to advance the study of tardigrade (water bear) biology while engaging and collaborating with the public. ISTH's main goals are to: Provide information about the collection and study of tardigrades to the public. The tardigrade science community has now settled down to striving to understand the biology and evolution of these lovely animals. And so back to Star Trek: Discovery, in which a fantastic symbiosis between fungi and tardigrades underpins the ability of humankind (and of other sentient aliens) to travel through subspace faster than light.
