The purpose of this distinguished book series is to describe the structure and functioning of all major types of ecosystem, whether aquatic or terrestrial, natural or subject to human influence - in some cases virtually man-made (like greenhouses, fishponds, or intensive animal production).
The subjects covered by Ecosystems Of The World are divided by ecosystem types or biomes, so that each volume covers that type on a world-wide basis. For each volume, one or more specialists in the field have been appointed as editors, and they in turn have assembled specialist writers from all around the world to contribute chapters. The result is a series of volumes that will serve as a basic source of ecological knowledge and reference for many years. Each volume contains high quality subject, species and author indexes for ease of reference.
Ecosystems of the World will appeal to biologists, ecologists, conservationists and land managers throughout the world.
