Reviews and Notes

Summary/Annotation ->  What makes an insect an insect? How is a ladybug different from a butterfly? What is metamorphosis? Classifying Living Things investigates how and why we group animals. Each book focuses on a particular class of living things, looking at the key characteristics that set its members apart from those of other classes. Discover how classes of living things have evolved, and how species have adapted to suit their environments. Find out why certain animals may show some characteristics of a particular class, but actually belong to another. Classifying Insects looks at the amazing class of six-legged fliers. Find out how insects are grouped into orders and how each one is different from the rest. From bedbugs to butterflies, from cockroaches to caddis flies, discover what makes insects so special.
