Atlas of the Environment. by Geoffrey Lean (Author)

Atlas of the Environment. by Geoffrey Lean (Author). ISBN-13: 978-0874367683. There is an extensive bibliography at the end of the book and an appendix, "Units and Conversion Tables," that enables readers to convert imperial to metric and centigrade to Fahrenheit; it also gives effects of radiation on humans measured in sieverts. Comprehensive environmental atlases are are hard to find; however, many atlases on specific topics exist. Examples are The Last Rain Forests: A World Conservation Atlas (Oxford, 1990) and the series of popular Gaia atlases, for example, Gaia: An Atlas of Planet Management (Doubleday, 1993).

The World Wildlife Fund (WWF) was founded on September 11, 1961, by Julian Huxley, Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands, Max Nicholson, Guy Mountford, and Sir Peter Scott. Its original logo, the black-and-white panda, was created by Peter Scott (1909–1989), an ornithologist, conservationist, and painter. The first WWF advertising campaign featuring a poster with a black-and-white panda appeared in 1961, and became the official poster of the newly founded organization. Hands surrounding the panda symbolized that human intervention is important in saving wildlife and that the future of wildlife is in our hands.
