Good Presentation of Animals of the Earth
Although it is a Dorling Kindersley (DK) book, it is a good size smaller than the Knowledge Encyclopaedia also produced by DK. This definitely limits somewhat the amount of information. The photographs though are excellent, particularly of the microscopic life.
It is described as a visual encyclopaedia. It certainly delivers on the visual front but on the encyclopaedic side I think its fails on two points 1) that there are no latin names given for the species and 2) very little information is actually given about the species.
On the plus side DK has produced the book under conditions working for a sustainable environmental future.
