Editorial Reviews

Inc. Book News
Intended for students and non-scientist general readers, this handbook constitutes a multilayered, conversational presentation of information about nature and how nature is studied. The first chapter asks "What is nature?" and includes a narrative about hiking and observing as well as discussion of US Forest Service Management of fire, and some of the processes of nature. Subsequent chapters focus on the earth's structure, the atmosphere, water, life forms (the biosphere, ecosystems, and animal groups), and wilderness. The substantial number of references and the glossary make this volume a good starting point for student research.
