Editorial Reviews

KLIATT
New entries in an exceptionally attractive nature series, featuring up-to-date research from naturalists and many gorgeous color photos—50 in each volume. The texts are easy to read but full of useful information for term papers or browsers. Glaciers covers their formation, how they move, and where they are found, as well as ice sheets, ice shelves, mountain glaciers, Ice Age ancestors, and glaciers in the future. Sea Otters looks at otters at sea, connections to coastal marine environments and ecosystems, population and conservation biology, and public involvement in sea otter conservation, among other topics. Shorebirds looks at diverse families, appearance, migration and movements, mating and social behavior, food and feeding, and conservation. These are lovely additions to any school or public library.
