Author: Tony Hare
Publisher: New York : Macmillan, ©1994.

Summary:
The fancy computer technology which blends color photographs into a single, fold-out composite landscape of each habitat looks ridiculously artificial, but the nicest thing about this 9x11.5" book is its clear, informative text. Also, the non-computer "enhanced" photographs are superb. Fourteen types of habitat are covered in depth.
