Want to learn about the natural history of the world by reading about the interrelationship of geology, botany, zoology, ecology, biogeography, climatology and paleontology, and learn how different phenomena throughout the earth's history has affected the natural world we live in? Amateur researchers as well as professional ecologists can take advantage of The Los Angeles County Arboretum and Botanic Garden Library's wide selection of books on this topic and learn how the natural environment has evolved and the interrelations among different forms of life.
