Beginning with a biological and evolutionary overview of the animal kingdom, this book examines a range of animal characteristics, such as anatomy, survival instincts and reproduction. It explores the impact that humans have had on the natural world, with an investigation into endangered species and wildlife conservation. There is also a section on the earth's habitats, showing how animals adapt to their surroundings. The second part of the book is divided into geographical chapters describing animals from North and South America, Africa, Europe, Asia and Australia. OVer 1000 full colour illustrations, 800 distribution maps and information boxes detailing habitat, diet, size, life span and conservation status accompany each entry.
