About this book

Language: Spanish

Historia Natural de las Islas Canarias, La Gomera, is a pocket guide and a work that will be helpful for both teachers and students, and for all those visiting the island. Its plain language aids understanding and it is enriched by the numerous illustrations in the form of drawings and colour photographs.

The high proportion of endemic species found only in the Canary Islands and nowhere else in the world, makes them extremely important, both at the level of natural resources, but also from the scientific point of view. Losing these species would be losing a valuable natural source in addition to damaging life on the islands, not only for the inhabitants, but also for future generations.

Summary in Spanish:
Historia Natural de las Islas Canarias, La Gomera, en guía de bolsillo, es una obra que será de gran ayuda, tanto para profesores y alumnos, como para todos cuantos visitan la isla, debido a su lenguaje claro y fácil de comprensión y a las numerosísimas ilustraciones, en forma de dibujos y fotografías en color.

La alta proporción de especies endémicas que se hallan sólo en las Islas Canarias y en ninguna otra parte del planeta, las hace extremadamente importantes, tanto a nivel de recursos naturales, como desde el punto de vista científico. Perder estas especies sería perder una valiosa fuente natural, amén de deteriorar la vida en las islas, no sólo para los habitantes actuales, sino para las generaciones futuras.
