Book description

From bugs to birds... from mosses to manatees... a swamp is a complex ecosystem. But young readers won't be swamped during this amazingly accessible wade through a small square of wetlands, filled with exotic wildlife. Here is a fascinating look at the characteristics of swamp life... and the reasons why its survival is so important. Beautifully illustrated, with fun-to-do experiments and activities, a swamp field guide, and a picture-glossary index and resource list. From the One Small Square series, called "science education at its best" by Science Books and Films.
