Review:

The result is a source book which is a joy to read...Buy it if you want to see the wood for the trees. - Journal of Biological Education; ...a valuable reference source. - Librarie Lavoisier; The text is extensively illustrated, presenting an excellent visual record of world vegetation, has an extensive glossary and is well referenced .. - Neu!; Archibold provided me with my most pleasurable and rewarding book reviewing experience to date ... Many thanks O.W. Archibold - if there is a better book of this ilk then I haven't encountered it. Having never travelled widely, and being unlikely to become a transcontinental field ecologist now, this book has given me a stimulating initial insight into habitats I will not otherwise encounter. - Annals of Botany; ... this is a fine work of scholarship, and any naturalist travelling abroad who is in any way interested in the habitats of the areas he is visiting should have the book available for reference - Countryside; ...a very readable book...a valuable introduction to the subject for undergraduates, teachers and lay persons. - Journal of Arid Environments; What Archibold has done is to achieve a good balance; maintaining the breadth needed for an overview of world vegetation, with sufficient depth to provide a solid introduction to the ecology of individual biomes. The result is a fine synthesis that should appeal to a broad audience. - New Zealand Journal of Botany; ...compendious and well-illustrated... - New Scientist
