About this book

The Ecosystems series is the only source that offers a complete understanding of global ecology. Illustrated with beautiful full-colour photographs, each volume combines the "hard sciences," such as biology and chemistry, with history, economics, and environmental studies. Each ecosystem is presented in its entirety with details on its history, biology, wildlife, beauty, problems, and influence on culture. This interdisciplinary approach emphasizes the complex, interrelated nature of each biome - giving readers the most integrated portrayal of the natural world available. Each volume spans Europe, Asia, Australia, Antarctica, and the Americas to present a particular ecosystem. Coverage offers a basic introduction to ecological concepts and demonstrates how these concepts influence the complex relationship between humans and the environment.

Media reviews
'The book is divided into ten sections, covering all aspects from geography and geology, to history and economic resources ... The sections are informative, and the author has done well to cover such a varied set of topics at a consistent academic level ... If the text of the rest of the series is as good as this, it will be a useful addition to general and popular literature on ecosystems.' Reference Reviews
