Arctic A to Z
A beautifully illustrated dictionary of 26 key aspects of life in the Arctic.
World-class photographer and science writer Wayne Lynch takes readers to one of his favorite parts of the world: the Arctic.
Using a plant, an animal or a phenomenon for each letter of the alphabet, Lynch describes the unique ways in which systems for living differ where temperature and light can be amazingly extreme. But Lynch also dispels the myth of the Arctic as a perpetually frozen landscape by introducing us to the birds, mammals, insects and plant life that thrive in the short yet glorious sun-filled days of summer.
