Gr 5-8--Filled with facts and interesting science projects, these books discuss the wide variety of life found in specific biomes. Most illustrations are in full color, and the many charts and graphs add to the presentations. A ``Resources'' section suggests additional reading and names organizations involved in the preservation or study of the ecological areas. An unusual feature is a listing of companies that sell conservation-oriented products and books. In spite of the fact that the introductions to all three volumes are identical, these titles are thorough overviews of specific living communities and are naturals for reports and projects.
