In 1502, Christopher Columbus named Costa Rica, and while gold and silver never materialized to justify the moniker of rich coast in purely economic terms, scientists and ecotravelers alike have long appreciated its incredible wealth. Wealth in Costa Rica is best measured by its biodiversity--home to a dizzying number of plants and animals, many endemic, it's a country that has long encouraged and welcomed researchers from the world over, and is exemplary in the creation and commitment to indigenous conservation and management programs. Costa Rica is considered to have the best preserved natural resources in Latin America. Approximately nine percent (about 1,000,000 acres) of Costa Rica has been protected in 15 national parks, and a comparable amount of land is protected as wildlife refuges, forest reserves or Indian reservations. This long-awaited synthesis of Costa Rican ecosystems is an authoritative presentation of the paleoecology, biogeography, structure, conservation, and sustainable use of Costa Rica's ecosystems. It systematically covers the entire range of Costa Rica's natural and managed, terrestrial, freshwater and marine ecosystems, including its island systems (Cocos Islands), the Atlantic and Pacific oceans and shores (coasts, coral reefs, mangrove forests), its lowlands (dry, season and wet forests), its highlands (the northern volcanoes and southern Talamanca's), and its estuaries, rivers, lakes, swamps and bogs.

Wer schützt die Königin gegen die Mächte der Finsternis? Panik am Hofe von Elisabeth I.: Der Astrologe Nostradamus hat den Sturz der jungen Königin vorhergesagt, sollte es ihr nicht gelingen, «die Knochen ihres Ahnherrn zu finden». Gleichzeitig wird ruchbar, in der gewaltigen Ruine des Klosters von Glastonbury sei das Grab von König Artus entdeckt worden. Sofort schickt Elisabeth den fähigsten Mann auf die Suche: Dr. John Dee, Hofastrologe und aller verborgenen Wissenschaften kundig. Doch Glastonbury ist eine Stadt voller Geheimnisse. Bald verliebt sich der junge Gelehrte in die Tochter des Wundarztes. Erst spät erfährt er, dass ihre Mutter als Hexe starb. Wieder flammt der Hexenwahn auf in Glastonbury, grausame Morde geschehen, und am Ende steht John Dee tief in den Gewölben des Klosters einem stummen Feind gegenüber ... «Ein bisschen Herz und eine ganze Menge schwarze Magie. Brillant erdacht und packend geschrieben.» The Times
