In the Deep Sea

by Sneed B. Collard

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3-6-Collard begins each clear and engaging title by introducing one or two scientists working in the field. As he explains their research, he incorporates general information about the topic. Deep Sea focuses on Edith Widder's experiments with bioluminescence and provides basic facts about marine creatures with that characteristic. In the Wild explores the work of wildlife researchers employed by Zoo Atlanta to help save endangered primates. Each well-designed volume has numerous color photographs and suggestions for further information, but most of the Web sites listed are for adults. Collard's Lizard Island (2000) and Monteverde (1997, both Watts), for older readers, include sections on the same scientists featured in Coral Reefs and Rain Forest Canopy. Readers wanting more information on bioluminescence will appreciate the large, striking illustrations in Anita Ganeri's Creatures That Glow (Abrams, 1995; o.p.). Other titles that focus on scientists conducting rain forest experiments include Kathryn Lasky's The Most Beautiful Roof in the World (Harcourt, 1997) and James L. Castner's Rainforest Researchers (Benchmark, 2001). Titles in the "Science Adventures" series are solid choices for collections needing additional or updated information.-Kathy Piehl, Minnesota State University, Mankato Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
