The latest exciting title in DK's popular illustrated atlas series maps out the habitats of the world's mammals, fish, birds, reptiles, invertebrates, and more. Whether ...it's plotting the range of a lion, following the flight paths of birds, tracking great white sharks in the oceans, or exploring the migration of the monarch butterfly you will see exactly where and how more than 100 extraordinary animal species live. What makes Animal Atlas unique is the maps themselves. Each one is individually commissioned in 3D, with detail to show the habitat of each animal, as well as its geographic location. This reveals an astonishing amount of information about the behaviour of these animals, from how seals are adapted to survive in freezing Antarctic seas to how beetles survive in the heat of the Sahara desert. There is also a focus on the conservation and protection of animals. Maps reveal the shrinking territories of some species, showing where they used to roam in the past compared to what's left of their range today. Whichever animal you're trying to track down, you're sure to find it in Animal Atlas.

            His research was urgent fifty years ago. Now, it's critical. In the early 1970s, budding Kiwi scientist Dave Lowe was posted at an atmospheric monitoring station on the wind-blasted southern coast of New Zealand's North Island. On a shoestring salary he measured carbon in the ...atmosphere, collecting vital data towards what became one of the most important discoveries in modern science. What followed was a lifetime's career marked by hope and despair. As realisation dawned of what his measurements meant for the future of the planet, Dave travelled the world to understand more about atmospheric gases, along the way programming some of the earliest computers, designing cutting-edge equipment and conducting experiments both dangerous and mind-numbingly dull. From the sandy beaches of California to the stark winters of West Germany, the mesas of the Rocky Mountains and an Atlantic voyage across the equator, Dave has faced down climate deniers, foot-dragging bureaucracy and widespread complacency to open people's eyes to the effects of increasing fossil fuel emissions on our atmosphere.

            Advisors who guided David Attenborough's Our Planet now reveal the full scale of the climate emergency we face, along with the positive message that if we act, we can stabilize Earth's life support system. To accompany the Netflix documentary Breaking Boundaries: The science behi...nd Our Planet , this high-impact book, written by leading climate change experts, explains the greatest crisis humanity has ever faced. The story is accompanied by unique visualizations of Earth produced by Globaia, the world's leading visualizers of human impact. The authors explain that in 2009, scientists identified nine planetary boundaries that keep Earth stable, ranging from biodiversity to ozone. Beyond these boundaries lurk tipping points. In order to stop short of these tipping points, the 2020s must see the fastest economic transition in history. This book demonstrates how societies are reaching positive tipping points that make this transition possible: groups such as Extinction Rebellion and the schoolchildren led by Greta Thunberg demand political action; countries are committing to eliminating greenhouse gas emissions; and one tipping point has even already passed - the price of clean energy has dropped below that of fossil fuels. At the brink of a critical moment in history, this essential book presents a vision of Planetary Stewardship based on a new understanding of our rainforests, ice sheets, oceans, atmosphere, and rich diversity of life.
