Readers are in for an interesting learning experience as they explore fascinating Adaptations in the Animal Kingdom. Author Verne A. Simon takes them on an exciting journey as he entertains and educates through his informative book released through Xlibris.
Intended for both the general audience as well as scholars of animal science, Adaptations in the Animal Kingdom discusses the general principles concerning adaptations and strategies for animal survival. It examines adaptations—from anatomical, physiological to behavioral—of various types of animals to environmental challenges. It also includes a detailed examination of some selected species. Though the selection is limited and arbitrary, the author chooses to include animals which are interesting with some novel facts about them.
Although many worthy aspects of the animal science and behavior are not covered, Adaptations in the Animal Kingdom is still worth reading due to the author’s eclectic approach which makes the subject matter more entertaining and memorable. This captivating book compels readers to contemplate the other creatures that share the world. After browsing through its pages, they will see how each animal adapts differently and discover new, perhaps unexpected, aspects of animal life.
Adaptations in the Animal Kingdom will be featured at this year’s California Library Association Book Exhibit in San Diego, CA on November 12-15, 2010. For more information, log on to Xlibris.com.
