STONEHOUSE, BERNARD - North Pole South Pole  A Guide to the Ecology and Resources of the Arctic and Antarctic

Title: North Pole South Pole A Guide to the Ecology and Resources of the Arctic and Antarctic
Description: Prion, London, 1990. Quarto. Hardcover, 216pp., colour illustrations. Minor wear only; near fine in like dustwrapper. "As a young ecologist" says Bernard Stonehouse, "I spent most of my time in the Antarctic. Not until my middle years did I discover the Arctic. It was rather like discovering the opposite sex". So Stonehouse begins his discussion of the polar extremes of the planet. This is a complex and wonderful catalogue of the differences that define the two poles and the similarities which unite them. Stonehouse is passionate about what these two savage environments mean for the planet and what they mean to us as a species. There are treasures to be gained, he says, but there are dangers involved and prices to pay for thoughtless exploitation.
