Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

While its 81/2" by 11" page format and liberal color photographs make this book visually appealing, the text is rather formulaic. By the Laidlers' own admission, theirs is not a comprehensive treatment. Filmmakers and academics, they profile 20 of China's more attention-getting endangered species: 16 mammals, two birds, the giant salamander, and the Chinese alligator. They open with a chapter describing China's eight distinct vegetation zones, ranging from tropical rainforest to alpine. A key map showing mountain ranges and more than two rivers and three cities would have been more useful as a reference for the following chapters, each of which focuses on one of the main vegetation zones and describes the loss of habitat that is the dominant threat to most native species. Comparable to Time-Life or National Geographic publications, this might be useful for high school students or public library patrons.-Laurie Tynan, Montgomery Cty.
