Inheritance and Variation of Traits
If two dogs have spots, will their offspring have spots, too? Can a tall plant be the offspring of two short plants? This book examines how traits are passed from one generation to the next in a variety of plant and animal species. Readers will also learn about variations in traits and how plants and animals adapt over time for survival. This important elementary science subject is explained in rich detail, and full-color images add depth to the text. STEM concepts addressed in the Next Generation Science Standards are also included.
