Cover of Volume 1

"Volume 1 [is] a friendly and useful introduction to relevant meteorological matters, using patient explanation and leading... students of geography, biology, geology and ecology... far enough into the subject that they will be able to discuss it adequately with meteorological experts."

Cover of Volume 2 "Volume 2 is a uniquely wide introduction to living nature... at the bottom of the atmosphere. [It] covers matter seldom found in meteorology textbooks, certainly not at this length and in such an insight-inducing manner. [This] is the best book now available that introduces... biology [to] meteorologists; it will remain valuable for very many years to come..."

-- Jon Wieringa, Wageningen University, in "Meteorologische Zeitschrift"
 

"Biologists must understand the physical sciences, and physical scientists must understand biology, or both will fail in their efforts to understand how the world functions. Professor Lowry and his son have collaborated to produce the two rich and fascinating volumes of Fundamentals of Biometeorology, which are both informative and inspirational, and which will amply reward detailed study by anyone interested in the functioning of life on Earth"
