The intricate relationship between living creatures and their habitats is simplified in this clear and detailed guide to the variety of environments that plants and animals inhabit. Tundra, forests, and the ocean are just a few of the many types of biomes discussed in this volume, each with a discussion of the adaptations species living there have undergone to best fit their surroundings. Key terms are defined in textboxes as well as sidebars with critical questions for the reader and compare-and-contrast activities on the various biomes covered.
