A beautifully illustrated guide to the many landscapes and systems that make up Planet Earth. The heated rock at the center of the Earth causes mountains to form and volcanoes to erupt. The plates that make up the Earth's surface are always shifting, creating the instability that causes such phenomena as earthquakes and tsunamis. At the far North and South, the planet is covered with ice that is crucial to its weather systems. Ice from glaciers and water from rivers and oceans continue to sculpt and change the surface as they move over land across the centuries. And the Earth has many different landscapes and ecosystems: rainforests in tropical Africa and the Amazon basin, taiga forests across the frozen wastes of Siberia and vast deserts on almost every continent. The text is enhanced by superb photos, charts and infographics to reveal the animal world in all its splendor.
