JUVENILE NONFICTION / Science & Nature / Environmental Conservation & Protection

Ecology isn't just for academics; nonscientists are exposed to it every day. The squirrels in the backyard, the trees and grasses in the neighborhood, and the green energies and fossil fuels powering houses and cars are all part of ecology. Aligning with the Next Generation Science Standards by addressing the interactions, dynamics, and energy in ecosystems, this book educates readers on a variety of ecological issues, including the problems with detergents, the big deal about green plants, and why some animals don't need energy from sunlight for photosynthesis. Through relatable examples enhanced by hands-on activities, interesting sidebars, and vivid photographs, students will learn the scientific principles, implications, and breakthroughs of ecology.
