Habitats & Hotspots > Hotspots > Nature’s Last Paradises by DuMont Reiserverlag (100) More files... Die letzten Naturparadiese
Published by DuMont Reiserverlag in conjunction with Nature Picture Library, this illustrated book takes us on a journey to the 35 Priority Places on earth where the diversity of plant and animal life is greatest as determined by the Worldwide Fund for Nature. These are areas with an especially high density of endemic species, which are under threat from human intervention. This book highlights the stunning landscapes and their unique wildlife; from the tropical rainforests of Amazonia, the colourful underwater world of the Caribbean and the Brazilian Cerrado plateau to the Himalayan Mountains and the expanses of the Caucasian steppe.

Available in German language edition. For enquiries about international co-editions, please contact info@uteheek.de.
