The Philippines: A Natural History
Colin Rees' The Philippines: A Natural History celebrates the extraordinary beauty and diversity of the Philippines's over 7,000 islands. Richly descriptive of the archipelago's topography, climate, and oceanography, along with its tectonic and geological history, it also explores the prehistory and the early years of indigenous life before moving on to Spanish times. Profiled are many of the country's protected areas - landscapes and seascapes designed to staunch the profound imprint of human activity that threatens the country's biodiversity.
