This title tackles the critical issue for humanity in the 21st century - our evermore menacing impact on the environment. This two-volume, illustrated set, begins with biodiversity, the complex planetary web of life that has emerged through three billion years of evolution. How does it work? And why is its continued health critical to the planet and to ourselves? It also features an A-Z survey which explores the myriad ways humanity is diminishing that biodiversity, from industrialization to natural habitat destruction, from overpopulation in the developing world to an unsustainable consumer lifestyle in the West.
