Summary
"Using an inquiry approach, this title explores the serious issue of the disappearing rain forests. The book offers accessible scientific explanations that reveal how the Earth's processes are interlinked--and how one event can trigger a chain reaction throughout the planet that can have consequential effects on both humans and nature. The volume includes fascinating case studies, critical thinking questions, and projected future outcomes and potential solutions to this important global issue"--Provided by the publisher
