About this book

Reviews information about the geology, geomorphology, microclimate, flora and fauna of both sea and inland cliffs. Evidence is presented to suggest that cliffs worldwide may represent an invaluable type of ecosystem, consisting of some of the least disturbed habitats on earth and contributing more to the biodiversity of a region than their surface coverage would indicate.

Contents
