The Biology of Deserts

By: David Ward (Author)

From £37.50

The intention of this series is to publish attractive texts giving an integrated overview of the design, physiology, ecology, and behaviour of the organisms in given habitats. Each book provides information on the habitat, its biodiversity and the types of organisms present. It discusses practical aspects of working within the habitat and the range of possible studies. Conservation requirements are also assessed. The series is intended for naturalists, students studying biological or environmental sciences, those beginning independent research, and biologists embarking on research in a new habitat.

Publisher: Oxford University Press

Forthcoming volumes in this series will be added to this page as soon as we become aware of them.
