Summary
"Take a journey through Earth's most amazing ecosystems, from icy seas and tropical rainforests to arid deserts and hostile mountains. Dive beneath the sunlit surface of the Coral Sea to find a reef bursting with life, or travel through the African Savanna to see powerful predators roaming the land. And as you go, discover how animals and plants adapt to their environment and each other."--, Page 4 of cover
