Poles apart : parallel visions of the Arctic and Antarctic by Galen A Rowell( Book )

5 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and held by 587 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Arctic, home of the polar bear, takes its name from the Greek arktos, meaning bear. The Antarctic - anti-arktos - is a realm devoid of bears, a place where penguins live on the ice unthreatened by land predators. Other differences abound: the North Pole sits in the middle of an ocean surrounded by land, while the South Pole is at 9,300 feet above sea level in the middle of a continent surrounded by oceans. The Arctic has hundreds of species of flowers and thousands of insects; the Antarctic has only two species of flowering plants and almost no flying insects. Boreal forest extends north of the Arctic Circle; Antarctica has no trees and its Dry Valleys are the most lifeless regions on earth. Humans have inhabited the Arctic for thousands of years; in the Antarctic every human is a visitor
