Synopsis

Invasive Species Set by Suellen May

Here is an engrossing and timely set that sheds a clarifying light on nonnative species run amok, from the wetland-damaging nutria rodent of the Gulf Coast to the alarming snakehead, a predatory, air-breathing fish capable of overland migration, to the microbes responsible for avian influenza. Invasive species are plants, animals, and microbes accidentally or intentionally introduced to environments lacking natural predators to keep these invaders in check. Invasive Species examines the effect of humans and travel in moving these organisms around the globe. Each volume discusses the most destructive plants, animals, or microbes; distinguishes invader characteristics; and, details ways these species can be controlled. Packed with full-color photographs, this worthwhile set offers general biology background and can be correlated to curriculum study of ecosystems. Individual volumes provide excellent regional-interest reading as well.

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
