Review by Publisher Summary 1

The seven biomes are explored through the lens of climate change in this factual, vividly-illustrated book. Plant and animal adaptations in environments like the tundra, the arctic, and the rainforest also discussed. Human impact in areas such as deforestation, fossil fuel use, and overgrazing is examined, making it clear that people have a responsibility for the world in which we live.
