Description: Named after Boreas, Greek god of the north wind, the boreal forest, or taiga, is the largest forest ecosystem in the world and encircles the northern latitudes of the globe like a giant green halo, broken only by the Bering Sea. Described as the earth's northern lungs, it plays a crucial role in protecting the planet from global warming -- and yet the boreal forest is vanishing, leaving us more vulnerable than ever to the effects of climate change.

In this lucid and vivid text, author Daniel Gawthrop describes what the boreal forest is, why it is so important, and why so many people know so little about it. He introduces us to the amazing variety of plant and animal life found within the forest, discusses the dramatic threat human activity poses to it, and examines the many promising solutions that environmentalists and industrial developers are actively seeking.
