Strange Animals, New to Science

Strange Animals, New to Science

by Laurence P. Pringle

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 4-6-Pringle brings insight into the struggles and triumphs of biologists and other scientists who rush to endangered wildlife habitats hoping for the discovery of extinct or new animal species. These professionals have had amazing experiences finding the 17 species described here. The presentation is limited, but it is special because of the photographs snapped on the discovery sites. That some are blurry does not detract from the impact, because they are the fascinating first proofs of discovery. Ronald Orenstein's New Animal Discoveries (Millbrook, 2001) presents a fuller, more polished book, complete with maps, time lines, photographs, and deeper insights into the subject. However, the process of uncovering a new species as a race between scientists' efforts and humankind's destruction of the habitats is one that Pringle explains with just enough detail to be useful for reports.-Nancy Call, Santa Cruz Public Libraries, Aptos, CA Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
