Plants by David Alderton
New to our little library comes this beautifully illustrated and informative book on plants. Pages 26-27 are all about pollination and seed dispersal, just what we have been looking at in Bay Unit as part of our unit on seeds. If you are struggling with your concept map, then have a quick squiz at this book as it will be very useful. It has sections on how plants survive hot and cold climatic conditions, on how plant protect themselves...and their weapons, and also a section on those strange meat-eating plants. It is a very accessible text with well-labelled diagrams and a glossary. The Amazing Plants Facts page at the back is also worth a look. There is also an eight-page fold out explaining the life cycles of trees and featuring vital features of all plant life.
