About this title


Examines the way plants and animals have colonized the land and adapted to the changing conditions found in a variety of environments

From Publishers Weekly:

Attenborough looks here at continuing evolution and the adaptation of plants and animals to specific and differing environments. For example, he finds that the coral reef is the marine equivalent of the tropical rain forest, that modern cities, with their masonry and concrete, are the counterparts of the ash fields and lava flows of volcanoes. PW lauded this book, maintaining that it deserves as much attention as its predecessor, Life on Earth.
