Summary
"Landscape-the unique combination of landforms, plants, animals, and weather that compose any natural place-is inherently transient. Each essay in Transient landscapes, Wohl introduces this idea of an ever-shifting, ever-transitioning global landscape, revealing how to see the ubiquity of landscape transience, both that which results through the earth's natural environmental and climatological process and which comes from human intervention"--
