Pressestimmen

"An ideal entry to winter ecology. It provides basic information, in a clear manner, about snowpack, plant and animal mechanisms of winter survival on land and in fresh water, plant-animal interactions in the cold, and human reactions to cold . . . Should be in all undergraduate and public libraries where people encounter snow and ice." --Choice

"Scientifically based and well-researched and well-written in a style intended for a general audience . . . I found it absolutely fascinating. For one who enjoys nature in winter and thinks she knows something about it, this book turned up lots of information on topics I hadn't even thought of."--Maine Sunday Telegram

"Teachers and naturalists will find Life in the Cold a valuable resource in their work; college level students can use it to supplement texts in ecology or field biology . . . A thoroughly useful and delightful book!" Nature Study"

"Marchand believes that winter is unfairly misunderstood, associated with 'stillness, darkness, and death.' Yet as each spring attests, living things somehow manage to reappear. To determine how, the ecologist spent 13 long and lonesome winters outdoors, traveling by snowshoe in Vermont and Colorado's Rockies studying the forces of winter and the ways that plants and animals cope with extreme cold, dryness, decreased sunlight, and severe conditions. In this book Marchand bolsters his own work with research from physics, meteorology, plant and animal physiology, and physical chemistry. But he pulls it all together admirably into a panoramic view of the winter ecosystem. He discovers many fascinating facts and destroys lots of preconceptions." Chicago Tribune"

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

PETER J. MARCHAND is trained in earth sciences and ecosystem analysis. He earned his doctorate studying winter stresses at tree line in the northern Appalachian Mountains, and has devoted much of his career to investigating all aspects of winter ecology. He currently resides in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, where he serves as principal investigator at the Catamount Center Biological Field Station. In addition to Life in the Cold, he is the author of Nature Guide to the Northern Forest (AMC Books, 2010).

Format: Taschenbuch
Thorough and scientific, this a good companion volume to Jim Halfpenny's excellent book on the same subject. Whereas Halfpenny's book is an excellent introduction for students and teachers of ecology, Marchand's book goes into more detail on physiological, behavioral, and biochemical adaptations to winter. It is therefore best suited to biology majors, graduate students, and naturalists with a desire for a complete explanation of how animals and plants adapt and survive in cold weather.

I'm fascinated by the animals that ensure winter with us and have often wondered how they do it. I feed lots of winter critters and have also wondered if I'm helping are interfering. Anyway...I'm very much enjoying the book!

5.0 von 5 Sternen very neat book 6. August 2001
Von merrymousies - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I started wondering one day what do animals do in the winter? How does thgis whole cycle continue. Then I got on Amazon, did a search and came up with this book. Its neat! It tells you about different hibernation methods (for example some insects turn their body fluids into a sort of antifreeze!) It also tells about plants and how they cope. Pretty interesting.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Wonderful insight 3. März 2016
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This book is an excellent choice for the serious naturalist as well as a beginning student of naturlalism. It balances plain language with basic scientific statistics to elaborate and explain the animal and plant life in the cold. For those who see nature in winter as a fascinating time of year, this book is wonderful insight.
