Overview

A Class of Their Own provides a close-up look at six major classifications of living organisms based on the most up-to-date scientific data. Using clear, detailed descriptions and stunning photographs and illustrations, each volume examines a specific kingdom or domain, the fascinating distinctions among its various members, and the ways in which each group's life-forms interact wit members of other groups, including humans.

How in the world do you classify the more than one million species in the animal kingdom? This fact-packed book divides animals into the major phyla, classes, and critical features. Fascinating case histories examine the discovery of new mammal species, the need to conserve endangered species, and the use of natural predators to control populations and preserve species and their environments.
