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 with members of other groups, including humans.

The Plant kingdom contains more than 250,000 species. This colorful book describes the main groups of plants, including mosses, ferns, conifers, and flowering plants. Special sections highlight the role of plant in the environment-as producers in the food chain and producers of the world's oxygen-and their important contributions to climate and the water cycle.
