"Its taxonomic coverage is complete and up-to-date; its background information on habitat, feeding, reproductive strategies, behavior and physiology is authoritative." GeotimesFrom the Back Cover:
The words 'natural history' conjour up an immediate vision of the living countryside--wild animals, flowers, birds and butterflies. This popular image of natural history is reflected in the content of this book. It is a dictionary about life on Earth, about the rich diversity of living organisms and their habitats. Mostly, it deals with present day species but it does include many fossil groups as well.
