The multitude of animal species is amazing. In concert with this is the diversity of form, behavior, and adaptation that animals exhibit. Even in improbably habitable places, such as barren deserts and icy polar areas, animals have evolved to meet the challenges with characteristics that help them not only survive, but thrive.
This elaborately illustrated visual reference encyclopedia is an authoritative compendium of the riveting world of animals. The first section is comprised of an overview of animal adaptations, behavior, biology, classification, evolution, and habitats. Definite attention is given to current conservation issues.
