The Moneran Kingdom
From kingdom to species, this series examines physical traits, adaptations, diets, habitats, and life cycles of the different taxonomic groups. the books include taxonomic charts (family trees), full-color illustrations, charts and tables, sidebars, a glossary, and lists of helpful resources. Striking photographs help to illustrate the immense variety in the size, shape, color, and behavior of Earth's many living things and humankind's relationship to them.
