Summary
This visually exciting book takes a unique look at our globe from the perspective of the wildlife and geology of Earth. Using an innovative design, maps are populated by infographics, graphs, and icons to represent information and statistics about a subject in a very visual way. This aids readers in comparing and contrasting the same subjects in different parts of the world. Each spread explores one subject in-depth, such as which areas in the world are most affected by natural disasters, where most endangered species live, how climate change is affecting our planet, and how effectively deforestation is being balanced out by reforestation around the world
