***PLEASE DISTRIBUTE WIDELY***
We are inviting academic editorial contributors to a new reference work
about biomes and ecosystems to be published by Salem Press in 2013.
With approximately 600 articles in 4 volumes, *Biomes and Ecosystems: An
Encyclopedia* is a comprehensive review of key biological and geographic
classifications tied to the high-school and college curriculum. The
reference work will cover the broad scope of biomes and ecosystems around
the world, from puddles on the street to coral reefs in Australia to rain
forests in Brazil to the tundra in Siberia. Each article will delve into
the properties that make the subject a biome or ecosystem, and how those
features work together. Especially targeted toward high-school students,
this outstanding reference work is edited to make the content readily
accessible as well to patrons of public, academic, and university
libraries. Pedagogical elements include a Topic Finder, Chronology,
Resource Guide, Glossary, Appendix, and thorough index. Presented in an
A-to-Z format, *Biomes and Ecosystems: An Encyclopedia* is richly
illustrated with photos, charts, and tables, all comprising an
unprecedented and unique resource produced by Golson Media for Salem Press.
We are now making new article assignments with a deadline of June 30, 2012.
Each article ranges from 600 to 3500 words and is signed by the
contributor. The General Editor for the encyclopedia is Dr. Robert Warren
Howarth, Cornell University, who will review all the articles for editorial
content and academic consistency.
If you are interested in contributing to *Biomes and Ecosystems: An
Encyclopedia,* it can be a notable publication addition to your CV/resume
