Rainforests by Louise Spilsbury


Rainforests by Louise Spilsbury

What is it like to live and work deep within Earth's rainforests? How many mysteries do these ancient forests hold and what are scientists hoping to discover by researching them? Explore how research conducted in rainforests can help with conservation, increase our understanding of climate change, and expand our knowledge of medicines, biodiversity and habitats. It can reveal untapped resources, and unknown eco-systems. Discover life and science on the edge in this fascinating exploration of one of Earth's most extreme environments. The Research on the Edge series examines how scientists live and work in some of Earth's most extreme habitats. It looks at how they carry out their research and how the discoveries they make are changing our lives. The series also explores the many adventures, challenges and dangers of daily life for scientists researching 'on the edge'. An exciting read for children aged 9+, for geography and science projects, or simply as a great leisure read.


A fascinating insight into the work scientists do in the rainforest... detailed enough to be informative, but is also kept as accessible as possible for a range of reading abilities by way of the layout. School Librarian
