About this book

Language: Bilingual in English and Portuguese

This book is a highly informative guide to the eight most important biomes of Brazil. All eight chapters follow the same sequence of treatment, from brief introductions to geology and the environment, through the presentation of each biome's flora and fauna, to human aspects and conservation issues. The present state of knowledge is reviewed, leaving room also for new and original ideas and considerations.
All the book's illustrations are hand-drawn. Alongside a wide range of instructive drawings and diagrams, there are outstanding large-scale dioramas of the different biomes considered.
