    Encyclopedia of the World’s Biomes
    is a unique, five volume reference that provides a global synthesis of biomes, including the latest science. All of the book's chapters follow a common thematic order that spans biodiversity importance, principal anthropogenic stressors and trends, changing climatic conditions, and conservation strategies for maintaining biomes in an increasingly human-dominated world. This work is a one-stop shop that gives users access to up-to-date, informative articles that go deeper in content than any currently available publication.

    • Authored and edited by top scientists in the field
    • Concisely written to guide the reader though the topic
    • Includes meaningful illustrations and suggests further reading for those needing more specific information

Environmental managers in governmental and nongovernmental organizations
