We share the earth with a wide variety of animal species, each of which brings something special to the diversity of the planet. By knowing more about how animals behave and live, we gain a greater understanding of how life evolved and the importance of biodiversity. Animal Parents examines how these animals care for their young to ensure their survival, care that is as varied as is animal life on earth. The book provides a thorough guide on the behavior of animal parenting, and helps students understand how vertebrates raise and nurture their young. Perfect for classroom papers, Animal Parents is highly illustrated with both color and black and white illustrations of the animals.
