ISBN 978-1-935778-202; 7" x 9"
by Marty Crump
Amphibians and Reptiles--An Introduction to Their Natural History and Conservation begins with a lively discussion of the fascinating world of amphibians and reptiles--and how they are similar and different from each other, their life histories, feeding behavior, defense, and amazing reproductive behaviors.
Written for 5th to 8th graders (and older), readers will learn that many populations of amphibians and reptiles are disappearing all around the world, and these declines should be a concern for scientific, ecological, aesthetic, economic, and ethical reasons. Six main causes for these declines--caused by humans--are identified as habitat modification and destruction, over-collection, negative effects from introduced species, environmental pollution, global climate change, and disease. In order to protect these animals, people need to change their perceptions and attitudes of amphibians and reptiles.
Research and education are essential components to learning how to protect amphibians and reptiles, and this book describes ways for kids to help. The book is written in an informal style, while it conveys critical information, and encourages readers to become part of the solution.
Amphibians and Reptiles--An Introduction to Their Natural History and Conservation is a thoroughly updated and expanded second edition of the award-winning 2002 book "Amphibians and Reptiles, and Their Conservation," which has since gone out of print.
