Product description


Professor Emeritus R. M. M. Crawford has written an engaging, thorough, and current text ... The text is accessible, well written, and easy to understand ... This is an excellent book (Arctic, Antarctic, and Alpine Research)

Tundra-Taiga Biology is an interesting and versatile summary that covers all the important knowledge that is needed in discussions on climatic warming ... Excellently documented research findings, good photographs, high-quality maps, diagrams, appropriate vocabulary and clear and distinct layout - all this is found in this book. (Luonnon Tutkija)

...this is just a lovely book. The breadth of information delivered here is just amazing and the illustrations are superb. (Ecology)

an extremely welcome up-to-date review about human, plant and animal survival in the Arctic. ... In my opinion, this book is a very high-quality text book and an informative picture book. Therefore I can highly recommend it not only for undergraduate and graduate students as well as professional lecturers, ecologists and conservation authorities, but also for all those who are interested in Arctic biology. This book is a very valuable and greatly enjoyable read in Arctic and tundra biology. (Minna T. Turunen, Polar Record)

This is an academic ecologist's perspective on the higher latitudes of the Northern Hemisphere. I know of no comparable account. It is vast in its scope yet fascinating in the minuteness of its detail. Crawford's book is a major work of scholarship. (Biological Recording in Scotland Record News)

the book is an excellent text (Michael D. Doherty, Austral Ecology)
