Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marcie Flinchum Atkins
Fourteen mammals, including humans, are presented at length in this textbook. Each mammal is presented in detail. The order, suborder, family, and genus are listed. The external anatomy is diagrammed and gives specific facts about each named part. All body systems for each mammal are given including skeletal, muscular, nervous, circulatory, respiratory, digestive, excretory, and reproductive systems. Photographs and drawings illustrate this text including diagrams of all systems previously mentioned. A few small color photographs are in each chapter. Sidebars offer comparative anatomy information and other interesting facts to draw the reader in. This textbook includes a full glossary, a bibliography, a list of internet resources, and an index. At the end of each mammal's respective chapter, a short list for further reading is included. This textbook would be a good reference for high school or public libraries. It would also make a helpful reference for middle school students who are writing reports. The text is well-organized making it easy to find specific information about each mammal.

School Library Journal
Gr 7 Up—These attractive print editions of selected articles from the publisher's Animal and Plant Anatomy database may be useful where the comprehensive 11-volume encyclopedia (2006) or its updated online version are unavailable or too expensive for scanty budgets. Anatomy and Physiology covers cell biology, genetics, and no fewer than 13 body systems; Mammal Anatomy contains chapters on 14 representative types of mammals (including "Human") from chimpanzee to zebra. In both volumes, each chapter pairs extensive and detailed descriptions of functions, structure, behaviors, distinguishing characteristics, chemistry, and other information as appropriate with large color photos or well-designed, clearly labeled diagrams. Contributors are listed at the front of the volume with their academic credentials; back matter includes keyword indexes. Though the information is not hard to find elsewhere, serious middle-grade researchers with limited access to science resources may find these detailed surveys valuable, and older students will also find them useful. In future printings (if there are any) a zany claim in Anatomy and Physiology that mammalian cells don't have nuclei will probably be corrected.—John Peters, New York Public Library
