Encyclopedia of North American Reptiles and Amphibians: An Essential Guide to Reptiles and Amphibians of North America
Author: Mattison, Chris
Description:
The Encyclopedia of North American Reptiles and Amphibians describes 82 species and groups of related reptiles and amphibians, all of which live in Central and North America, and most in the United States. Two introductory articles describe the basic body structure, biology, and natural history of amphibians and reptiles. Descriptions of individual species vary: from the Barton Springs salamander that lives in just four springs in Texas to the common garter snake that lives from coast to coast; from the green, leatherback, and hawksbill turtles that frequent all shores to the western diamondback rattlesnake of the driest landscapes; and from the poisonous Gila monster of Southwestern deserts to the monstrous alligator snapping turtle of the Mississippi swamps. These and other examples demonstrate the vast diversity of one of the most intriguing group of animals.

Encyclopedia of Insects And Spiders: An Essential Guide to Insects and Spiders of North America and the World
Author: Preston-Mafham, Rod
Description:
Encyclopedia of Insects and Spiders describes and illustrates fifty-one groups of insects and spiders. In addition, two articles introduce the basic biology and natural history of insects and spiders, respectively. Their form and natural history are more varied than any other group of animals alive today. The beauty of butterflies, moths, and dragonflies is in marked contrast to the alien-looking forms of some bugs, scorpions, and spiders. There are hoverflies that look like bees, ants that look like wasps, and even nonpoisonous butterflies that deter predators by resembling unrelated butterflies, which are, in fact, poisonous to their predators. This book provides a fascinating exploration into this remarkable group of animals.

Caring for Your Plants
Author: Digest, Reader's
Description:
When gardeners seek guidance, they want specific instructions; they need to know what to do and when to do it. After all, successful gardening is largely a matter of organization. To transplant annual flowers into the garden in late spring for example, you must sow each species indoors at the correct point in early spring. If the broad-leaved weed killer you are spreading on your lawn is to be effective, then you must apply it when weeds are growing actively in midspring. The following pages present this kind of specific advice in the form of a year-round calendar of gardening tasks.
