Summary

This photo atlas provides insight into the organisms that live all around us, which we seldom have the opportunity to observe. This atlas attempts to cover the diversity of plants and animals as they exist in their many niches. How do we do that?: Clear line drawings accompany most of the full-color photos, which makes identifying details of the photos easier. Easy-to-understand labeling helps the student learn. Excellent, crisp photography provides the most accurate portrayal of biological subjects. The photographs emphasize "process" and are labeled with complete descriptions of the subject or process.
