South Florida is home to many of the most popular tourist destinations in the United States, and, as a major metropolitan destination, Miami is highly rated for its exciting nightlife. These areas are also home to some incredible natural history sites and a variety of complete ecosystems, the deterioration of which has rapidly become one of the top future concerns among Americans. This book could be labeled a tourist guide for these sites, a history text, a field identification guide for the area and many of its important native animal and plants species, or even a guide to useful conservation tips and the organizations that support conservation efforts. Perhaps the most notable and engaging features of this work are its incredible color photography and its vibrant layout. Authored by four passionate scientists and conservation professionals, the pictures and their descriptions bring these species and their habitats to life. These alone make the book mandatory. Readers, both leisurely browsers and students, and native Miamians, Floridians, and citizens all over the world will likely find it engaging and enriching.
VERDICT Recommended for all libraries, particularly those in the southeastern region of the United States.
