Reviews

@qu:"This book definitely fills a niche different from that of any [of]their work on the environment and ecology. An intense effort was made to make this a useful teaching tool, and it shows. For the many biologists... this would be excellent as a textbook or an addition to their personal libraries." @source:--THE QUARTERLY REVIEW OF BIOLOGY @qu:"Well-illustrated and well-produced and the several indexes are useful and comprehensive... a useful source of material and it will provide a good introduction to an important subject area." @source:--JOURNAL OF BIOGEOGRAPHY
