PUBLISHER FOR THE LIFE SCIENCES
Biological Sciences; Earth and Environmental Sciences; Sustainability Sciences
In the Earth Sciences and Sustainability our primary focus is global climate change and sustainable development. We prize books that can translate cutting edge science for the non-scientist as well as works that reinforce the urgency of global climate change. The modern shift in the Geosciences to a more planetary and systems based paradigm informs our list building effort. We have a long tradition of publishing excellence in paleontology.
In the Life Sciences we focus on ecology and evolution and public health. We seek books that offer new ways to approach enduring scientific questions as well as emerging areas of interest in these fields and controversies within them. Books that by leading scientists that popularize essential scientific debates and findings and inform the public and policy are a hallmark of the list.
