Details

The variety and diversity of life on Earth fascinates young students. Of the many forms of life that live or have lived, those on land are the ones humans are most familiar with overall. However, life on land originated hundreds of millions of years ago, and its development is the subject of an awesome story. From the first plants, moss-like growths, to the people of today, many forms of life have colonized the land. Some have thrived for millions of years, and others, notably humans, are relatively recent inhabitants. Despite their differences, all life on land is part of the same process of development. This highly illustrated and engagingly written volume surveys land inhabitants for young students.

On the Land presents the past and present of life on land in all of its diversity. It deals with changes in climate and geography, the fossil record, living and extinct species, the adaptation of creatures to life on land, and much more. Easy to understand and loaded with illustrations, this book is an ideal introduction to the topic. With the information in this volume, young students will gain a better understanding of their place in the natural order and learn the answer to the question, where did life on land start?
