Here is a spectacular, thought-provoking, and highly informative guide to the fascinating story of ecology. Superb color photographs of animals, plants, and ecosystems reveal the ideas and discoveries that have changed our understanding of life around us. See how plants store their food supply, how dung enriches the soil, how biodiversity is measured, the damage caused by acid rain, and a field-digger wasp capturing a fly. Learn how plants create their own food, how and when the world's human population "exploded," and how your backyard provides a small-scale model of life all over the Earth. Discover the links in the seashore food chain, how the buffalo was saved from extinction, why insects such as locusts are subject to population explosion, and much, much more! Examine all the ways in which animals, plants, energy, and matter are linked together in the cycle of life.

Grade 3-6-These three series entries explore their specific subjects, emphasizing technological and societal aspects as well as historical connections, in an appealing format. The books feature double-page topic treatments, each with numerous illustrations that are clearly labeled and accompanied by extensive captions. Portraits of scientists and biographical notes on their contributions to their fields are included. Electronics describes the changes in machines from pre-electric times to the modern world of computers with portable satellite terminals, facsimiles, VCR remote controls, command and communication centers on aircraft carriers, and other technological innovations. Explanations of the scientific principles that underlie these advances are also offered. Human Body serves as an interesting overview of the fields of anatomy and physiology as well as a visual guide to the structure and physiology of the body. The full-color photographs of well-crafted museum models are outstanding. Following a definition of Ecology, this volume is packed with information about the interrelationships of living things, and between them and their environment, all of which is well organized and presented in an understandable manner. All are excellent introductions to the areas of science they explore; their striking visuals make them particularly attractive.
