Grade 8 Up—This in-depth examination of the causes and effects of climate change on the environment is adapted from articles to be included in current and upcoming editions of Compton's Encyclopedia. Climate, ecology, and environmental pollution are the main subjects with each area subdivided into sections including the greenhouse effect, biogeography, endangered species, and environmentalism. Contributors are top professionals in their field. Sidebars add information on topics ranging from saving the giant panda to notable environmentalists. Students who use encyclopedias will find the format and look of this volume familiar. The colorful, labeled graphics and illustrations are effective but do not overwhelm the wealth of information provided in the (small-print) text. The scope is international and the message regarding the urgent need for change in environmental policy and commitment is delivered with scientific detachment. An excellent source for students requiring more than a cursory examination of the subject.—Eva Elisabeth VonAncken, Trinity-Pawling School, Pawling, NY
