A Home in the Biome
Our planet is home to diverse animals that have adapted to living in habitats around the world. This series offers an in-depth look at Earth's major biomes, including mountains, oceans, wetlands, deserts, rivers and lakes, and coral reefs. Written to support elementary life-science curricula, each title covers the fascinating organisms in a biome and why they're suited to living there. Readers will understand the organisms' role in a biome's complex ecosystem and how human intervention can upset the ecosystem's delicate balance--something these creatures need to survive. Full-color photographs, maps, and fact boxes help reinforce concepts and offer opportunities for additional learning.
