    Description

    Come explore the world. From the mountain heights where the air is thin and breathing is difficult to the heated deserts where temperatures can soar to well over 120 degrees, come explore the world. From the sultry, wet rain forests where sunlight never brightens the underneath to the dry, arctic tundra with its fragile ecosystem, come explore the world. From the variable deciduous forests rich with wildlife to the arid grasslands where animals roam in herds, come explore the world.

    This scripturally founded book opens a window to the spectacular environments found on our planet, from deserts to the tropics, with respect to creationism. Researcher and biologist Dr. Gary Parker brings his vast knowledge of ecology to a teaching setting, exploring and explaining ecosystems, population growth, habitats, adaptations, energy problems, and much more, Learn about insect control in California, why mammals have fur, and how sharks maintain "friendships" with small fish known as remora.

    Exploring the World Around You brings the varieties of our planet's habitats alive to the reader, and is a wonderful learning tool complete with illustrations, chapter tests, and an index.
