When living things die, it is important that they get broken down. Scavengers help break dead things into smaller pieces. Decomposers can then turn those pieces into nutrients for the soil. Decomposers and Scavengers: Nature's Recyclers looks at how animals and other organisms make the world a better place by breaking down waste, as well as the threats they face and how people can protect them. Easy-to-read text, vivid images, and helpful back matter give readers a clear look at this subject. Features include a table of contents, infographics, a glossary, additional resources, and an index. Aligned to Common Core Standards and correlated to state standards. Core Library is an imprint of Abdo Publishing, a division of ABDO.
