Summary
Newly revised and updated, this is a comprehensive field companion to the plants, animals, geology, topography, climate, and ecology of the American Southwest. A perennial classic, it describes the four deserts--the Great Basin, Mohave, Chihuahuan, and Sonoran--which together stretch into nine southwestern states and Mexico. The topography, geology, and climatic conditions of these arid lands set the stage for the ecological study of the survival and adaptation of animal and plant life in the severe, often extreme desert climate and terrain. Abundantly illustrated with line drawings, maps, charts, and diagrams.--From publisher description
