This title is intended for ages 6-10. Plants are living things that grow and change. Over time, plants have made remarkable adaptations to suit the habitats in which they live. Simple text and beautiful images highlight how plants have adapted to life in the Arctic, in aquatic environments, and in other habitats such as those in deserts and grasslands. It describes plants that live in extreme environments and explains how they survive; explains the different ways plants find and store water; explains how plants compete for sunlight in dense forests or other low-light habitats; and, shows how some plants are camouflaged or have other defences that prevent them from being eaten.
