Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this comprehensive and abundantly illustrated book, Allan Schoenherr describes a state with a greater range of landforms, a greater variety of habitats, and more kinds of plants and animals than any area of equivalent size in all of North America. A Natural History of California will familiarize the reader with the climate, rocks, soil, plants and animals in each distinctive region of the state.

Synopsis:

"You want to own this book. Perhaps the most impressive thing about this book is the number of illustrations, most of them photographs taken by the author. This guy knows of what he speaks!"—George M. Clark, California Wilderness Coalition

Synopsis:

This book includes a description of organisms, rocks, and the environment and an attempt to explain what factors through time created what we see today. The facts behind the concepts that are stressed in this book have been drawn from ecology, zoology, botany, biogeography, climatology, paleontology, and geology.

About the Author
