The Biological Environment, continues the Fundamentals of Biometeorology series, in a two-volume sequel to the late Professor Lowry s classic text Weather & Life. The principles of the first volume are used to consider the effects of the microclimatic environments of plants and animals, as well as the influence of humans and the urban environment.
Written for students of both biology and meteorology in a supportive but rigorous way, its originality and freshness make it so much more than a textbook-peppered with insights, derivations and worked examples.
Tim Oke, Professor of Geography, University of British Columbia
Professor Lowry and his son have collaborated to produce the two rich and fascinating volumes of Fundamentals of Biometeorology, which are both informative and inspirational, and which will amply reward detailed study by anyone interested in the functioning of life on Earth.
