About this title

Synopsis:

The five-volume Encyclopedia of the Animal World set offers young readers and appealing introduction to major animal groups and species alive today. Served up in an easy-to-follow format with highly accessible text and top-notch color illustrations and photographs, this set is sure to be a hit.

Each volume in the set examines how a creature's size, color, feeding methods, and defenses evolve in relation to a particular diet, climate, and habitat. Also explored are the human activities that often disrupt natural ecosystems and threaten the survival of many species.

Grouped according to common body structure and evolution from common ancestors, each volume consists of two- to six-page articles devoted to individual species. Each article includes a fact panel that provides information at a glance on the world distribution, habitat, group size, diet, lifespan, scientific name, and conservation status of every species.

This volume covers both aerial predators and flightless birds, introducing young readers to the hunting methods of hawks, owls, woodpeckers, parrots, kiwis, and ostriches.

Product Description:

This encyclopedia contains information on some 4000 species of predatory birds, from ospreys and vultures to kingfishers and eagles. Fully illustrated, the text offers insight into the lifestyles, behaviour, physical features, abilities and diet of a diverse group of birds.
