Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 5–8—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."
