Essential Atlas of EcologyBook - 2005
One of two brand-new titles in Barron's Essential Atlas series for Spring 2005, this book combines text with full-color photos and art on every page to examine the planet Earth as the habitat for all known life forms. Following a general introduction, the Essential Atlas of Ecology presents a series of generously illustrated two-page spreads, each focusing on a separate ecological topic. Among them are: The biosphere: water, light, and energy; the atmosphere and the Earth's climates; the ecological pyramid; the oceans and coastal regions; rivers and lakes; contamination of our ecosystems; organic methods in agriculture; smog and other urban contamination problems; deforestation; the shrinking ozone layer; recycling products for ecological stability; and many other topics related to ecological problems and their solutions.
