Synopsis

Biomes of the Earth by Michael Allaby, Trevor Day, Peter D Moore

The 10-title Biomes of the Earth set outlines the main features of each of Earth's major biomes. The biomes covered include the tundra habitats, the taiga and temperate forests, grasslands of the prairies and the tropical savanna, deserts of the world, tropical forests of the equatorial regions, wetlands of the world, vast oceans, rivers and lakes, and a manmade biome - agricultural and urban areas. Lavishly illustrated with full-color photographs and line illustrations, this set provides students with a basic understanding of Earth's biodiversity, the factors that influence it, and the future dangers that face the planet and our species. Each volume provides current information about a particular biome's function, resources, and diversity, helping young readers experience the many climates and regions of Earth. Clearly written and easy to use, this comprehensive set provides an excellent overview of the prominent ecosystems of the world. Each book covers: global distribution; climate; rocks and soils; plants and animals; history; and, environmental problems found within each biome.
