Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Children's Literature
One of the "Ecosystems of North America" series, this book examines the flora and fauna of the northern forest, the relationships among the members of this biological community, and the interplay between the living and non-living elements in this ecosystem. Concepts such as the food web, energy flow, the nutrient cycle, succession, and the impact of fire and pollutants are explained clearly and concisely. Individual chapters are devoted to the evergreen and aspen-birch forests, the northern lakes, peatlands, and beaver ponds. The book concludes with a look at the forest's future. Scientific terms (i.e. habitat, understory, photosynthesis, primary and secondary consumers, decomposers, trophic levels, phytoplanktin, zooplanktin, core samples, etc.) are printed in bold are explained in context. Interesting asides about unusual plants, logging, lightning, "bog bodies," and fur trading, as well as "how to" information on collecting leaves and plants and identifying conifers complement the text. 2000, Benchmark Books/Marshall Cavendish, Ages 9 up, $27.07. Reviewer: Ellen R. Braaf

Gr 4-8-These titles are attractively produced and visually pleasing. However, the fact-dense prose tends to give a dry, textbook tone to both of them. In Forest, the map locates evergreen forests, aspen-birch forests, peatlands, and beaver ponds in such a general way that students may actually be misled about their range. Beaver ponds appear to exist only in the northeastern and north central U.S., and the mass of Canada and southern Alaska show only evergreen forest. Even the range of the boreal forest in Alaska does not appear to be accurately depicted. Also, a sidebar about the beaver trade ends in mid-sentence. Tundra also features a map that may mislead as much as it informs. It shows summer and year-round homes of certain fauna but includes a small disclaimer: "Areas shown are not the only residence of these animals"-with no further explanation. There is no indication of why the particular areas were featured as homelands for these species when their ranges in most cases are much more extensive. Stick with April Sayre's Tundra (21st Century, 1995), Donna Walsh Shepherd's Tundra (Watts, 1996), Bruce Hiscock's Tundra (Atheneum, 1986; o.p.), or Donald Silver's Arctic Tundra (Learning Triangle, 1997).-Sue Sherif, Fairbanks North Star Borough Public Library, AK Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|
