The kingdom Protista includes organisms, most of them microscopic, which have both animal and plant features. With such a diversity of life forms in this grouping, the features of this kingdom are quite varied. This intriguing book shows how this group's unusal members are generally classified according to an absence of a feature, such as the lack of complicated cell structure. Learn about such exotic organisms as algae, dinoflagellates, radiolarians, amoebae, and slime moldsall of them protists. Case histories examine the importance of plankton to the marine food chains, innovative uses of protists by humans, and the role of protists in various diseases.

About the Author:

Rona Arato has published eleven children's books including Working for Freedom: the Story of Josiah Henson. Her books have been nominated for numerous awards. Courage and Compassion: Ten Canadians Who Made a Difference received the OLA's Golden Oak award for 2011. She lives in Markham, Ontario.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 6-8–More accurately titled A Kingdom of Their Own, this series devotes a volume to each of the five life-form kingdoms. Rather than trying for comprehensive surveys–an impossible enterprise–the authors present in some detail both shared characteristics and, using carefully selected examples, the remarkable range of forms, internal structures, habitats and habits of each group's denizens. Lively section headings (Pilobolus kleinii: A Dung Fungus Squirt Gun) and notes on uncommon achievements, such as the ability of the giant Pacific octopus to open jars and even pill containers, lighten the substantial load of biological terminology. Illustrated with a plethora of close-up color photos and microphotos, and closing with annotated lists of recommended Web sites, these volumes capture the remarkable diversity of life while providing meaty introductions for serious students of natural history.
