Synopsis: What do you have in common with a shark, a zebra, and a pine tree? All four of you are alive - and so all four of you are made up of cells. Cells perform amazing functions. An animal's muscle cells contract and expand in response to signals they receive from nerve cells, allowing the animal to run or jump. Plants' leaves contain cells that collect sunlight, which in turn provides energy for photosynthesis, the process by which plants create their own food. Well-known science authors Alvin and Virginia Silverstein and Laura Silverstein Nunn explore these and other cellular functions, from the simplest prokaryotes to the ten-foot-long neurons in a giraffe's neck. The authors also discuss how advances in cell research have led to artificial cloning, and how they are bringing scientists closer than ever to finding cures for serious diseases.

About the Author: Dr. Alvin Silverstein is a former Professor of Biology and Director of the Physician Assistant Program at the College of Staten Island of the City University of New York.

Virginia B. Silverstein is a translator of Russian scientific literature. The Silversteins have produced more than two hundred published books that have received high acclaim from reviewers for their clear, timely, and authoritative coverage of science and health topics.

Laura Silverstein Nunn, a graduate of Kean College, began helping with the research for her parents' books while she was in high school. Since joining the writing team, she has coauthored more than eighty books, including titles in the ENDANGERED IN AMERICA series, the SCIENCE CONCEPTS series, the SENSES AND SENSORS series, and the WHAT A PET! series. Laura lives with her husband Matt and their son Cory.
