It outlines some of the broad ecological relationships between humans and the rest of the material world and summarizes information on the health of the planet.
`A thorough and up-to-the-minute account of the variety of life on Earth and how fast it is shrinking. One cannot plan strategically to prevent the loss of that variety without the information and maps that this excellent and timely book provides.' Stuart Pimm, Columbia University
`This is an exciting piece of work - well-written, well-researched, and authoritative.' Simon A. Levin, Editor-in-Chief of Encyclopedia of Biodiversity
This is an exciting piece of work - well-written, well-researched, and authoritative.-Simon A. Levin, Editor-in-Chief of Encyclopedia of Biodiversity "The book amounts to a detailed report card on the status of the world's biodiversity resources at the beginning of the new millenium. It brings together, and integrates to substantial degrees, huge amounts of information that is widely scattered in both technical literature and in governmental and NGO reports."-Malcolm Gordon, co-author of Invasions of the Land: The Transitions of Organisms from Aquatic to Terrestrial Life "It is an amazingly diverse collection of data on global biological diversity-very effectively analysed and displayed."-David J. Chivers, Wildlife Research Group, University of Cambridge
