The Living Planet: A Portrait of the Earth, David Attenborough
9 David Attenborough The Living Planet: A Portrait of the Earth
Collins / BBC 234738 London 1984 0002191393 / 9780002191395 Hardcover Very Good Condition Good Nowhere on our planet is devoid of life. Plants, animals and man thrive or survive within the extremes of climate and almost infinite variety of domicile which it offers. Single species and often whole communities, adapt to make the most of ice-cap and tundra, forest and plain, desert, ocean and volcano. The adaptations are sometimes extraorfinary: fish which walk or lay eggs on leaves in mid air; snakes that fly; flightless birds that graze like deer; and bears which grow hair on the soles of their feet. In The Living Planet, based on his BBC television series, David Attenbourough's searching eye, unfailing curiousty and infectious enthusiasm, explain and illuminate the intricate lives of these colonies - from the lonely heights of the Himalayas to the wild creatures which have established themselves in the most recent of environments, the city. By the end of this biook it is difficult to say which is the more astonishing - the ingenuity with which individual species contrive a living of the complexity of their interdependence on each other and the habitations provided by our plant. As in the author's previous book, Life on Earth, which unfolded the story of evolution, a profusion of superb photographs illustrates the principal facets of the earth's surface and their inhabitants. 320 pages. Fully Illustrated. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos. Category: Animals & Nature::Natural History; Natural History & Resources; ISBN: 0002191393. ISBN/EAN: 9780002191395.

Life on earth traced the development of animal life from its beginnings, and The living planet concentrated on how the environment shapes the bodies of animals. Now Attenborough examines how animals use those bodies how they behave and why. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or. 320 pages. Dust Jacket price-clipped.

At The End Of The Rainbow - Gold, Land and People in the Brazilian Amazon, Gordon MacMillan
15 Gordon MacMillan At The End Of The Rainbow - Gold, Land and People in the Brazilian Amazon
Columbia University Press 244269 New York 1995 0231103557 / 9780231103558 Softcover Very Good Condition Throughout the 1980s, a combination of widespread poverty and favourable gold prices encouraged hoards of wildcat miners to penetrate some of the Amazon's rainforest headwaters in search of new deposits. Now, hundreds of makeshift camps threaten the future of both the rainforest and the indigenous people who inhabit it. This book explains how gold fever came to grip the Amazon and considers the changes it has brought to the region. It contains a vivid account of the violent clash between forty thousand miners and the Yanamami Indians in the state of Roraima, as well as thoroughly researched arguments that explore the perspectives of the farmers, ranchers, natives, and others involved in this historic moment. 199 pages.

The Great Barrier Reef, James Woodford
18 James Woodford The Great Barrier Reef
Pan Macmillan 234851 Australia 2010 1405039965 / 9781405039963 Trade Paperback Very Good Condition The real Great Barrier Reef is not just a single clown fish or a colony of branching stag horn coral. Nor is it simply the crystal clear water, cocktails and beautiful bodies of the tourist ads. It is not just the stage for murders, mishaps, shipwrecks, or shark attacks. The real Great Barrier Reef is a living thing - a 2600-kilometre-long, untamed organism, made up of trillions of animals. It is the magnificent and terrifying home to the wild things of nightmares and hallucinations. James Woodford wanted to understand the real reef in all its complexities and along its entire, extraordinary length. For a year he worked and dived with marine biologists, exploring it from the coral outpost of Lord Howe Island in the south to the crocodile haunted waters at the reef's northern boundary in Cape York. 388 pages. Illustrated with colour photographs. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos. Category: Australian; Natural History & Resources; Animals & Nature::Natural History. ISBN/EAN: 9781405039963.
