Overview

"A captivating, fact-filled atlas exploring animal habitats around the world for home or school. This beautiful book is from the producers of Firefly Encyclopedia of Animals, praised by Kirkus Reviews ""the entries come from all over the world; some are common and others rare, but all are interesting in some way... for browsers and researchers alike, this is a useful and inviting display -- and a bargain."" Firefly Wildlife Atlas is similar but approaches the animal kingdom by means of habitat. It is also remarkable for its scope and presentation, covering almost 1000 animals in meticulous full-color illustrations and concise authoritative text. From millipedes to monkeys, this book offers a detailed and thorough guide to a wide array of the world's mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians and fish, as well as insects, spiders and other invertebrates. The atlas format shows regions and their habitats, for example, the African Grasslands has savanna in the Serengeti, bushveld in the south, and desert in the Sahara. Other regions may include one or more of tropical or temperate rainforest, woodland, wetland, tundra, polar and others. The regional maps present groups of native animals, such as browsers and foragers, birds of prey, reptiles and amphibians. Readers learn about the species and how they can co-exist in a single habitat. For example, one illustration shows how the physical characteristics of browsers and grazers allows them to eat from the same tree - an elephant's trunk grasps a tree's branches, leaves and fruit; a giraffe's long neck reaches the treetop's tender leaves; and a smaller eland uses its curved horns to break the tree's stiff lower branches. Firefly Wildlife Atlas also has encyclopedic A-Z spreads that show and describe a variety of species in one class of the animal kingdom, such as insects, reptiles, and birds. Special features cover topics like migration, seasonal change, cooperative predation, endangered species, and animal behavior. Packed with beautifully detailed illustrations and authoritative and accessible text, this is a book that is sure to open a young reader's eyes to the remarkable diversity of the animal kingdom and where they live."
