Part of the Odysseys in Nature series
Every biome on Earth contains predators and prey--links in food chains that connect different species to one another. Odysseys in Nature invites advanced readers along on a journey to experience the relationships of the natural world like never before. Joining geography and science, these titles feature a sophisticated design that serves as a fitting backdrop to images of plants and animals from the entire spectrum of the food chain. Side panels and colored glossary terms assist in making the text accessible to a wide range of learners.
