Deserts: The living drylands' remarkable and evocative text is expertly edited by a leading authority on deserts. Illustrated throughout with spectacular photographs, this book celebrates the diversity and beauty of the landscapes and the wealth of wildlife thriving in these extraordinary and complex habitats. Vast dry expanses, home to nomadic herders and isolated oases, are among our planet's last great wilderness regions. From the rolling sand dunes of Arabia's Empty Quarter to the ancient volcanic peaks of the central Sahara, Nature's forces have worked for millennia to produce landscapes of serene beauty and amazing ecology. This visual feast is an authoritative journey through some of the world's least understood ecosystems. Written by an expert in an accessible style, it is both a vivid inventory of amazing images, facts and stories and an invaluable source of reference. This sumptuous book brings to life this unique habitat for wildlife enthusiasts and eco-travellers alike.
