At first sight this beautiful book looks to be a marvellous addition to the biodiversity literature. It is written by 72 authors and is embellished throughout with 358 glossy photographs, many of them with double‐page landscape portraits showing everything from forest destruction in Colombia to stunning pictures of the bontebok ( Damaliscus dorcas dorcas ) at the foot of the Langeberg Mountains in South Africa.
