Why are Tasmanian devils in danger of extinction?

How do dolphins find food?

Classifying Living Things looks at how and why we group animals and plants. Each book starts with an introduction to classification, explaining why grouping organisms helps us to understand the natural world. It also provides information about classification systems and the use of common and Latin names. Each title goes on to investigate examples of the more important orders, presenting their characteristics and explaining why some organisms fit into a particular group and others do not. Animals and plants that are endangered or threatened are also discussed.
