Summary The fourth edition of a classic work on cold climate ecosystems, with a new chapter on climate change and its effects on plants and animals wintering in the North.
"Peter J. Marchand's Life in the Cold, remains the one book that offers a comprehensive picture of the interactions of plants and animals--including humans--with their cold-weather environment. Focusing on the problems of 'winter-active' organisms, Marchand illuminates the many challenges of sustaining life in places that demand extraordinary adaptations. The fourth edition of this classic text includes a new chapter on climate change and its effects on plants and animals wintering in the North"--Provided by publisher.
