Life in the Human Body
What goes on in the watery world of a pond, in the branches and leaves of a tree, or in the dark depths of a cave? With the help of color photographs and illustrations, Microhabitats takes the reader into these busy but often unseen worlds, where a variety of plants and animals interact in a complex web of life. Readers will also learn about the threats to the future of these miniature environments. Life in a Tide Pool explores: at the shoreline, tide pool plants, there to stay, just visiting, and tide pools under threat.
