Life in the Cold
An Introduction to Winter EcologyPaperback - 2013
Peter J. Marchand's Life in the Cold remains the one book that offers a comprehensive picture of the interactions of plants and animals--including humans--with their cold-weather environment. Focusing on the problems of "winter-active" organisms, Marchand illuminates the many challenges of sustaining life in places that demand extraordinary adaptations. The fourth edition of this classic text includes a new chapter on climate change and its effects on plants and animals wintering in the North.
