Peter Ashton

Kew Publishing, £110.00

Peter Ashton's seminal work is a masterpiece of scientific scholarship in an area that is of tremendous importance for the biosphere.

This will be the book that researchers in the field will gravitate towards to gain an insight into the complexities of tropical Asian forest ecosystems. With its beautiful illustrations, On the Forests of Tropical Asia looks like a coffee table book, but it has a depth of scholarship and commitment that shows one man's life's work in this fascinating field.
