附註 "Over the past decade, artist Rachel Sussman has researched, worked with biologists, and traveled the world to photograph continuously living organisms that are 2,000 years old and older... Alongside the photographs, Sussman relays sometimes harrowing tales of her global adventures tracking down her subjects and shares insights from the scientists who research them."--Publisher's description
