Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
Antarctica covers ten percent of the world's surface, an area equal to the USA and Mexico combined. Its harsh environment locks 70 percent of the world's fresh water into ice sheets, in places over four kilometres deep; yet a unique ecosystem supports one of the richest concentrations of wildlife in the world. This book provides a panoramic view of the continent with over 200 photographic images and a graphic, informative text.
