This magnificent book represents an astonishing journey through the most valuable natural paradises in Europe. All their habitats (polar regions, tundra, taiga, mixed forests, temperate deciduous forests, Mediterranean forests, steppes, mountain ranges, wetlands, coasts and seas) appear before the reader in a selection of the parks and nature reserves that best represent them.
The description of these habitats will help us to a better understanding and interpretation of the natural environment. Strolling through any park will be a more satisfying experience if, besides admiring its landscapes and flora and fauna, we get to know the secrets of nature revealed in these pages, and even more if we perceive the fascinating adaptations that plants and animals present faced with environmental difficulties.
This book is also a source of practical information for all nature-loving travelers, who will be able to plan itineraries according to their objectives and preferences. 357 parks from 44 countries are described, with 383 stunning photographs and 106 maps.
