New Books – February 2011
There are several books that have come out recently that will be of interest to visitors to our site. One is on Tropical Montane Cloud Forests by Sampurno Bruijnzeel and co-authors. These forests receive a large portion of their water input from the fog that covers them during significant parts of the year. Also, Pilar Cereceda, an active member of FogQuest, and Ana Maria Errazuriz have written an Atlas of Chile and the World, which has been published by the largest Spanish educational publisher for use in schools in Chile. The first order was for 300,000 copies!
