About this title

Synopsis:

Discusses the importance of plants and what can be done to protect some kinds of plants that face extinction

From Booklist:

Gr. 5-8. This volume, another in the Cincinnati Zoo Book series, studies the future of the plant kingdom, showing graphic examples of forest destruction in Costa Rica, the Amazon River basin, and Thailand and demonstrating the interconnectedness of plants, animals, and people. In Madagascar, for example, home of more than 10,000 plant species (80 per cent of which grow only there), a majority of once common species no longer exists. Yet, a plant that contains chemicals helpful in treating leukemia, the rosy periwinkle, is native to Madagascar. What other medicinal plants exist there or in other places, waiting to be discovered? The book is packed with fascinating facts and carries a balanced message of problems and successes. Encouraging involvement, the author supports reading and researching issues, joining environmental organizations, raising money for selected causes, and writing letters. On every page, captioned color photographs illustrate the author's points clearly. Although the text is challenging, those wanting to learn about the plant kingdom will be rewarded by their efforts. A glossary, a list of conservation organizations, and a bibliography are appended Deborah Abbott
