Review quote

"This book definitely fills a niche different from that of any ther 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."
-THE QUARTERLY REVIEW OF BIOLOGY
"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."
-JOURNAL OF BIOGEOGRAPHY
