About this book

Up to 20 percent of species may be extinct by 2030. Vividly presented through full-colour maps and graphics, this fully revised and updated atlas profiles species lost, threatened and surviving today. It examines different ecosystems, the major threats to their inhabitants and steps being taken towards conservation.

Fully revised and updated, this title contains new maps covering environmental impacts of human development including climate change and damage caused by deep-sea trawling and mining. Updated maps and data on birds, reptiles, amphibians, invertebrates and fish and of the increasing area of wetlands covered by the Ramsar Convention. This title provides the latest information on endangered mammal species such as the panda, the Arabian oryx and the bonobo.
