About Book

From Library Journal
The groundbreaking Biodiversity (LJ 4/1/88) was responsible for introducing the term into the common parlance and for dramatically increasing awareness of the plight of the world's dwindling biological resources. The 33 chapters in the current multiauthored volume provide not only a comprehensive ten-year update on the state of the art of biodiversity but also proceed even further than the 1988 book in suggesting concrete and cost-effective solutions to the biodiversity crisis. Biodiversity II, with its longer and more technical chapters, may be slightly less lay reader-friendly than the original, but the inclusion in the new work of 70 color photos greatly enhances its attractiveness. Imperative for all academic and large public libraries and for all sizable environmental collections.?Lynn C. Badger, Univ. of Florida Lib., Gainesville
