Variation in Living Things

It seems obvious that a pig will never give birth to a puppy, but why should that be the case? Variation in Living Things explains the causes and limits of variation in species - such as blood groups and disposition to disease - and why it is so important to their survival. It tackles common confusions about the science and shows how topics are relevant to the reader.

School Library Journal - Kathryn Diman

"Whether comparing a blue whale to a puffball fungus or discussing chimpanzee communication or the Census of Marine Life project, this informative series fulfills core standards for life-science studies. The forthright writing covers organisms’ adaptations and habitats, natural selection, and elemental genetics. Intriguing photos, diagrams, and text boxes enhance each volume. However, Life Processes asserts that "Identical twins share exactly the same DNA, so they are just like clones," but Variation contradicts this by stating that researchers have recently discovered that "there are some differences." - Kathryn Diman, Bass Harbor Memorial Library, Bernard, ME School Library Journal April 2012 Issue" - School Library Journal

Library Media Connection - David Lininger

"Each title in this series is lavishly illustration and includes research questions. There is not a lot of detail present, but rather an attempt to cover a fairly broad area quickly, and in a fashion that will catch the attention of middle school students. Since these topics are often covered in middle school science classes, this series is likely to be a good addition to the library." - Library Media Connection
