About this book

The third book in the trilogy after Megadiversity and Hotspots, Wilderness combines nearly 300 breathtaking images of untamed lands and rare glimpses of the people who inhabit them with the most current scientific analyses of their endangered ecosystems. This majestic volume identifies 37 wilderness areas around the globe - including tropical rain forests, wetlands, deserts, and arctic tundra, from Amazonia to the Congo Forests of Central Africa to the complex of North American deserts - and presents the research of nearly 200 specialists carried out over two years by Conservation International's Centre for Applied Biodiversity Science with support from its Global Conservation Fund. The result is a detailed document of the biological riches that can be found in each of the wilderness areas, with chapters that describe and illustrate them, highlight the human cultures unique to each area, and explain the threats to each region and the conservation measures in place. The result is a stunning book - one that presents vital information on the earth's biodiversity and a realistic program of conservation complemented by state-of-the-art photography.

The most comprehensive analysis done on Earth's wild places and population trends.-Seattle Times
