By Alice James
Dive into the amazing world of biology with this beautiful book full of places to explore and flaps to lift. Look at the whole tree of life from microscopic bacteria and scuttling bugs to swaying forests and ocean creatures, as well as the cells and genes that form them. What makes a living thing alive, what is biodiversity, and how can we protect life on Earth?
Alice James joined Usborne in 2015, after several years of working in primary schools. She absolutely loves science, and over the years has lived with chimps, spent a month in the rainforest, studied Biology at Oxford University, and grown 200 carnivorous plants (not necessarily in that order). Whilst at Usborne Alice has worked on books on all kinds of science topics, from space to energy to the periodic table.
Visit Usborne Quicklinks for links to websites about the study of living things, from tiny microbes to rainforest animals and human beings, with quizzes, videos and activities, and tips on how to help the planet.
