Synopsis: Research on the Edge: Rain Forests is a gripping look the vital research scientists carry out in extreme conditions, and the incredible technology that enables them to live and work in such dangerous places. Rain Forests also explains how research in these regions can increase our understanding of climate change and biodiversity. Sidebars highlight the latest technologies and perils scientists face.

From School Library Journal: Gr 5-8-Fascinating overviews of scientists working in extreme conditions introduce the types of research they pursue and the resources they require. Specialized equipment designed to withstand extreme cold or intense pressure allows people to extend their studies. Readers see individuals working in labs such as the International Space Station or the underwater Aquarius and learn about the support systems that monitor their safety. Rain Forest notes how local people contribute their knowledge to explorations of remote regions. The books tackle questions of how research enterprises are funded and note the increased involvement of corporate interest in "bioprospecting." Readers also learn about publication and presentation of research and how results can influence government and conservation action. VERDICT Effective introductions to the hazards and rewards of scientific research.α(c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
