A Complete Guide to Arctic Wildlife by Richard Sale
We’re launching Book of the Week with A Complete Guide to Arctic Wildlife by Richard Sale in recognition of International Polar Bear Day (which is on Saturday 27th February).
The first part of this book introduces the reader to the Arctic ecosystem with concise but informative sections on geology, climate, habitats, biogeography, human settlement and the impacts of human activity.
The second part of the book is a field guide to the Arctic’s 213 bird species and 77 mammal species. Illustrated with photographs, plates of paintings and colour range maps, the species accounts provide detailed information on identification, distribution, communication, diet and breeding.
