Homosexuality in its myriad forms has been scientifically documented in more than 450 species of mammals, birds, reptiles, insects, and other animals worldwide. Biological Exuberance is the first comprehensive account of the subject, bringing together accurate, accessible, and nonsensationalized information. Drawing upon a rich body of zoological research spanning more than two centuries, Bruce Bagemihl shows that animals engage in all types of nonreproductive sexual behavior. Sexual and gender expression in the animal world displays exuberant variety, including same-sex courtship, pair-bonding, sex, and co-parenting—even instances of lifelong homosexual bonding in species that do not have lifelong heterosexual bonding.

Part 1, “A Polysexual, Polygendered World,” begins with a survey of homosexuality, transgender, and nonreproductive heterosexuality in animals and then delves into the broader implications of these findings, including a valuable perspective on human diversity. Bagemihl also examines the hidden assumptions behind the way biologists look at natural systems and suggests a fresh perspective based on the synthesis of contemporary scientific insights with traditional knowledge from indigenous cultures.

Part 2, “A Wondrous Bestiary,” profiles more than 190 species in which scientific observers have noted homosexual or transgender behavior. Each profile is a verbal and visual “snapshot” of one or more closely related bird or mammal species, containing all the documentation required to support the author’s often controversial conclusions.

Lavishly illustrated and meticulously researched, filled with fascinating facts and astonishing descriptions of animal behavior, Biological Exuberance is a landmark book that will change forever how we look at nature.

    The perfect antidote for the Christian folks who believe homosexuality is “evil” or a “tool of Satan”. This little-known book crushes any notion that homosexuality is anything other than just plain normal. The animal kingdom is rife with examples of homosexual behavior. Many of the animals studied preferred same-sex couplings their entire lives. Bagemihl’s effort should be made available to high school biology students, college students…and seminarians struggling with their sexual identity. Wh

    My vote for best book on the planet? Possibly. Can I just say to Bruce Bagemihl, few have ever done such service to the general public with a book. It changes your ideas. You need this knowledge.

    It’s not merely about gay animals – though there’s no end of them.

    It’s not merely about gay animals – though there’s no end of them. Of value to me was its study of indigenous peoples, how they see animals – the sexual diversity of animals – and the results of this for their culture and ideas about the world. ‘Exuberance’ is a key concept: an exuberance of life that Western science has been blind to; a return to ‘indigenous cosmologies’ and what they have to teach us, more truly; a proposal for the future of animal science (where animals, of course, include humans).
