About this book

This 2-volume set begins with biodiversity, the complex planetary web of life that has emerged through 3 billion years of evolution. How does it work? And why is its continued health critical to the planet and to ourselves? It also features an A-Z survey which explores the ways humanity is threatening that biodiversity, from industrialisation to natural habitat destruction, from overpopulation in the developing world to an unsustainable consumer lifestyle in the West.
