About this title

Synopsis:

Book by Benton, M. J.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 6 Up This excellent book covers the origin of life and evolution. The clearly written text contains frequent cross references to further explain topics. The use of many charts, graphs, and pictures are very useful in clarifying the text. The first of three sections covers the history of scientific theories concerning the age of the earth and the evolution of life on it. Section Two is devoted to tracing the development of life through the geological eras, including the effect of continental drift. Graphs and time charts show how groups of plants and animals most likely evolved. Theories about the rate of evolution, early man, and cycles of mass extinctions are among the topics in the last section. There are many sources of information on the origins and development of life on earth that are more detailed than The Story of Life on Earth. However, as an overview that ties everything together succinctly in a visually attractive format, this book is hard to beat. Cynthia Sturgis, Ledding Library, Milwaukie, Oreg.
