Natural disasters destroy more property and kill more people with
each passing year. Volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, hurricanes,
tsunamis, floods, landslides, fires and other natural events are
becoming more frequent and their consequences more devastating. Del
Moral and Walker provide a comprehensive summary of the diverse
ways in which natural disasters disrupt humanity and how humans
cope. Burgeoning human numbers, shrinking resources and
intensification of the consequences of natural disasters have
produced a crisis of unparalleled proportions. Through this
detailed study, the authors provide a template for improving
restoration to show how relatively simple approaches can enhance
both human well-being and that of the other species on the planet.
This book will appeal to ecologists, land managers as well as
anyone curious about the natural world and natural disasters.
