Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3-6-Halpern provides detailed descriptions and examples to show how, ``Directly or indirectly, all life on Earth depends on plants.'' They are presented as renewable energy resources, sources for medicine, and as a solution to world hunger. There is an excellent explanation of pollination and of the relationships among plants, as well as of the relationships between them and insects, birds, and bats. Halpern uses startling, impressive figures and facts to make his point. Glossary terms and words listed in the index appear in bold print throughout the text. Captioned, full-color photographs are well placed. Readers are encouraged to get involved in helping to save the Earth by reading newsletters and books, and by writing letters to government leaders. Conservation organizations are listed with addresses. Although there are a number of books about the plight of the rain forests, few show the total picture concerning the 20-25,000 species of plants that are currently endangered. This easy-to-read book provides in-depth information that will be useful to researchers.-Karen M. Kearns, Environmental Resource Center, Atlanta, GA
