About this book

First comprehensive view of the Amazon river and its 13 major tributaries. Colour maps and photos provide spectacular views of the river and rainforest. Many intriguing topics are explored such as why some of the Amazon's tributaries have black water, what happens when the freshwater of the Amazon reaches the ocean, and why we all should be concerned about the deforestation that contributes to the loss of species diversity.
