From bugs to birds...from mosses to manatees...a swamp is a complex ecosystem. But young readers won't be swamped during this amazingly accessible wade through a small square of wetlands, filled with exotic wildlife. Here is a fascinating look at the characteristics of swamp life...and the reasons why its survival is so important. Beautifully illustrated, with fun-to-do experiments and activities, a swamp field guide, and a picture-glossary index, and resource list, this work is from the "One Small Square" series, called "science education at its best" by "Science Books and Films".
