On a positive note, I found the book extremely modern, containing the latest environmental and biological scientific data i.e. contrast of vegetation communities shown by 2d illustrations; excellent plant structure images from scanned electron micrographs. Along with excellent photography of landscapes, plant communities and individual plants with close ups of flowers. Most pictures are in colour, with excellent diagrams of plants from a botanical point of view, which could do with illustrative references for the ametuer botanist, like myself.
There is also climatology maps on the regions discussed within the book and alot more. This is a valuable book for the amateur, all students and those within a related professional field.
