The Penguin Atlas of Endangered Species: A Worldwide Guide to Plants and Animalsby Richard MacKay
Confronting the possibility that as many as 20 percent of existing plants and animals will be extinct by 2030, The Penguin Atlas of Endangered Species is an indespensable resource for locating and identifying different species of wildlife and shows how human survival depends on biodiversity. This useful reference traces the movement and dispersion of animals and plants across continents, catalogs the inhabitants of different ecosystems, and provides at-a-glance information about vulnerable species. It also presents an authoritative and easy-to-understand analysis of the key environmental issues in case studies that examine the major threats to biodiversity and the measures being taken toward conservation. The Penguin Atlas of Endangered Species is an important and accessible reference suitable for professionals and students alike.
