Description: From the flap: “This dictionary lists many groups of plants and animals, but it also includes terms from ecology, statistics, earth sciences, atmospheric sciences and biochemistry that may be encountered in literature dealing with aspects of plant or animal growth, structure or behaviour. At the same time, it will be of use to those concerned with other disciplines who are unfamiliar with taxonomic terms that may occur in literature of special interest to them. The dictionary contains over 12 000 entries, written by a team of more than 25 specialists aided by consultants, and its coverage is world-wide. It will be of value to students as well as to those who derive pleasure from the wildlife around them, or even from well tended gardens, and who wish to support personal observations by reading and watching films, but need ready access to authoritative explanations of unfamiliar expressions.”
Notes: Foreword or introduction by David Attenborough. Size: 9½" x 6¼". Black boards with Gilt titling to the Spine. 68 pages.
