Summary

Nothing is more essential to life on Earth than water, and the diversity of animals in global river habitats make this the perfect subject for a study of life cycles. This book explores how 11 creatures--including favorites like the piranha, the river dolphin, the trout, the grizzly bear, and the otter--are interrelated in three river food chains. Full color.

Table of Contents

NSTA Recommends
This book stands out among other books that cover the topic of community ecology. Comparing rivers in South America and North America with ponds in Europe, it integrates many concepts into one unifying theme: river communities. . . . [U]se this book as a supplement to lessons covering food chains/food webs, life cycles, or even biomes. Reading level is appropriate for the intended audience (grades 2–5). The book would be a smart addition to a classroom library for use in a community ecology unit.
