'An attractive book, written for the nonspecialist, that portrays nature with a wealth of simple maps, lovely photographs, and considerable basic introductory information… Both a browsing book and beginning reference book… Recommended for high-school, public, and undergraduate libraries.'-- Booklist/RBB

'Gorgeous color photographs, detailed maps, and clear and authoritative scientific explanations make this atlas both informative and captivating… A particular nice feature is that the geographical location and other details of each photograph are consistently provided.' -- SciTech Book News
