Earth Matters (Hardcover) By Rothschild, David De Probably best used for browsing or in a family collection, this title is certainly not an encyclopedia of ecology as we usually think of an encyclopedia. It is, however, an attractive, fact-filled volume that may inspire young people to learn more about their earth. Following a 40-page introduction that touches on the the greenhouse effect, the carbon cycle, water consumption, and other topics, the book covers eight biomes. Polar regions, temperate forests, deserts, grasslands, tropical forests, mountains, freshwater, and oceans are described in 20-30 pages that presents facts about the ecosystem, specific organisms, modern problems (logging, warming tundra, controversial crops), and what young people can do to make a difference. Information is presented on exciting two-page spreads with maps, photographs, charts, and intriguing commentary, much like exhibits at a modern nature center.
