Global and local impacts such as climate change, biodiversity loss, water pollution and structural issues such as government policy... and neoliberal economics are affecting global and local habitats as well as how we perceive, relate to and care for them.

            This stunning new atlas is your first class pass on a world tour of the homes of Earth's most amazing animals. The latest exciting title in DK's popular illustrated atlas series maps out the habitats of the world's mammals, fish, birds, reptiles, invertebrates, and more. Whether ...it's plotting the range of a lion, following the flight paths of birds, tracking great white sharks in the oceans, or exploring the migration of the monarch butterfly you will see exactly where and how more than 100 extraordinary animal species live. What makes Animal Atlas unique is the maps themselves. Each one is individually commissioned in 3D, with detail to show the habitat of each animal, as well as its geographic location. This reveals an astonishing amount of information about the behaviour of these animals, from how seals are adapted to survive in freezing Antarctic seas to how beetles survive in the heat of the Sahara desert. There is also a focus on the conservation and protection of animals. Maps reveal the shrinking territories of some species, showing where they used to roam in the past compared to what's left of their range today. Whichever animal you're trying to track down, you're sure to find it in Animal Atlas.
