Synopses & Reviews
This information-packed atlas combines attractive photos, diagrams, and illustrations with lucid text to introduce readers to ecology, the science that focuses on the interaction of animals and plants as they relate to the Earth’s total environment. The book pays special attention to ecology’s practical aspects—specifically, the influence of human activities on nature, and on steps that should be taken to keep the planet habitable for future generations. A general introduction offers a helpful overview to ecology, and a detailed subject index guides readers to individual topics.

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.
