This title provides a beautiful and sometimes stark examination of the current state of the Earth's freshwater ecosystems. The authors, along with dozens of the world's most accomplished photographers, tell us why Earth's freshwater supplies and systems are in peril. These ecosystems have proved resilient throughout millennia, but in the last few generations humanity has radically destroyed them to the point of alarm. Series editor Cristina Mittermeier has successfully gathered distinguished authors from a range of disciplines. Led by Russell A. Mittermeier (president of Conservation International) Thomas Brooks (NatureServe), Tracy Farrell (Conservation International), Ian Harrison (IUCN and Conservation International), and Amy Upgren (Conservation International) have specialized in developing national regulations for freshwater systems, species taxonomy and data compilation, wildlife trade, research and development, ornithology, biodiversity, and conservation actions.
