Provides a thorough and accessible description of the climate, plant and animal life, origins and human impacts, and history of the scientific exploration of every major biome in the world. Chapters on the "human-dominated" biomes--urban areas and agricultural regions--illustrate how these frequently ignored communities are also an important part of the global environment.
?Most people today recognize the concept and names of the major terrestrial biomesdesert, tropical rainforest, and tundra. Woodwards book helps to fill in the details of the plants, animals, soils, climate, and other factors that create the realities behind those names....Woodwards book is obviously aimed primarily at a high school population, and it will be a valuable addition to high school and even middle-school libraries. Because of its readability, it will be useful to public and academic libraries, as well.?-E-Streams
