Seahorses, Pipefishes, and Their Kin

Overview

How is a snipefish similar to a seamoth? What does a bobcat have in common with a badger? Are all insects bugs? The books in the Animals in Order series will help you make sense of the animal kingdom. Each book focuses on a particular scientific grouping called an "order." You will discover that it is easier to learn about the traits and behaviors of animals if you first know which ones are most closely related.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 5-7-These colorful series entries present a wide variety of creatures that have been sorted by scientific classification into similar groupings called orders; one step below a class, one above a family (and for those critters who refuse to fit the mold, superclasses and suborders). While one might expect pelicans and cormorants to be paired, not everyone anticipates boobies and tropic birds to make the cut, nor to team sticklebacks with seahorses. However, these improbable mixes do make sense scientifically, and each title presents the reasoning behind its groupings and then displays examples of the order's diverse population through bright, full-page color photos accompanied by a page of readable text. Some titles group geographically; some by physical configuration. Family names, common names, genus, species, size, and/or location are given, and paragraphs describe various behaviors (food gathering, courtship, etc.). A closing note discusses such topics as habitat destruction, overfishing, and animal intelligence. While not sources for serious research, these colorful titles provide some pertinent information, help to explain the reasoning behind scientific classification, and are attractively browsable additions.-Patricia Manning, formerly at Eastchester Public Library, NY Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
