Overview

Polar Climates by Cath Senker

Where is the "Land of the Midnight Sun?" What are Katabatic Winds? How Do Penguins Keep Warm? Take a look at polar climates. Find out which plants and animals have made their homes in polar regions, how people live there, and how climate change is threatening these wild and beautiful places. Infosearch asks the questions that young people want answered. Each chapter starts with a question and provides a detailed answer. The Climate Zones series looks at the features of four major climate zones. The books explore the characteristics of the land and weather in each zone, and how plants, animals and people have adapted to life in that climate zone. The effects of climate change and other developments in the region are also covered.
