Description

This work is a guide to the Antarctic continent, the Southern Ocean and all the subantarctic islands. It covers all aspects of Antarctic ecology and includes a detailed identification guide to the birds and mammals found in this largely unspoilt region. Every bird and mammal species occurring in the area is described in detail, and the species accounts are illustrated with plates and colour photographs. Additional chapters cover the geography, geology, climate, flora and general ecology of the various subantarctic islands as well as the main sites in Antarctica itself. Issues affecting the ecology of the region are addressed, examining the impact of human activity on the area and its wildlife, and relevant conservation concerns. The text also includes a chapter of useful information for visitors to the Antarctic, with details of landing sites, timing of trips and weather conditions throughout the year.
