    Om Transient Landscapes

    Landscapethe unique combination of landforms, plants, animals, and weather that compose any natural placeis inherently transient. Each essay in Transient Landscapes introduces this idea of a constantly metamorphosing global landscape, revealing how to see the ubiquity of landscape transience, both that which results through Earths natural environmental and climatological processes and that which comes from human intervention.The essays are grouped by type of environmental change: long-term, large-scale transformation driven by geologic forces such as tectonic uplift and volcanism; natural variability at shorter time scales, such as seasonal flooding; and modifications resulting from human activities, such as timber harvest, land drainage, and pollution. Each essay is set in a unique geographic locationincluding such diverse places as New Zealand, Northern California, Costa Rica, and the Scottish Highlandsand is largely drawn from Wohls personal experience researching in the field. A combination of travel writing, nature writing, and science writing, Transient Landscapes is a beautiful and thoughtful journey through the natural world.
