Summary
"Deserts aren't home to many plants. Those that live in such dry, hot environments need to have special adaptations to thrive. The many kinds of cacti do! Readers explore the ways cacti conserve water, their unique habitats, and the features that make them a weird plant, compared to the tulips in your garden! From spines to flowers, full-color photographs and a plant diagram show readers what many species of cacti look like"--Provided by publisher

Review
Gr 3–6—Fascinating overviews combine general plant information with insights into their more unique features. For example, Bristlecone Pines and Cacti explain adaptations that allow the plants to survive under harsh climate conditions. In addition to numerous photos, useful diagrams aid readers in understanding complex topics, such as the life cycle of a corpse flower. Although kelp are brown algae, not true plants, as the volume notes, the discussion of the complex ecosystem of their underwater forest and their important contributions to marine life conveys valuable information. Browsers may be especially intrigued by how carnivorous plants trap and digest their prey. The volumes note threats to all these unusual plants' survival, especially habitat destruction, pollution, and climate change. VERDICT A top choice for its refreshing approach to flora. --Kathy Piehl (Reviewed 04/01/2017) (School Library Journal, vol 63, issue 04, p93)
