A striking visual route into environmental science. Maps of countries and continents depict where natural resources are found, and how they are being depleted by human activities such as gold mining in South Africa and gas drilling in the Poles. Look at maps of Australia and North America to see how land is used for farming. See how forests are being chopped down for timber across the world. Look at maps of African precious metal mines, British stone quarries and Welsh slate mines. Helping children to see how vulnerable ecosystems are affected by human activities, this topical book uses maps, photos and charts to explore fossil fuels, minerals, building materials, precious gems, industrial materials, fishing and farming.
