Biogeography

£5.99

Product description

This book provides an introduction to plant an animal life on earth for students of geography and environmental studies. Professor Simmons deals equally with the spatial distributions and relationships of plants and animals, their environments and the impact of man. He describes the natural biogeography at the organism, ecosystem and biome scales. he then traces the history of man's influence on other species from hunting and domestication to advanced agriculture and genetic manipulation. He is particularly concerned to explore the impact of technology at various levels and the nature of actual and possible man-biota relationships. the problems of preservation and exploitation confronting the developed countries and the problems of resource management and energy-budgeting in the less developed countries are presented in the context of the value judgements that underlie policy decisions. Professor Simmons has provided both an historical survey and an examination of the contemporary interactions of man and the environment. the book is generously illustrated with plates, diagrams and tables.
