Dorling Kindersley Pub

Animals Alive is an exciting exploration of animal life through the ages. A host of amazing animals are illustrated and introduced — but why are some of them no longer alive? To explain this, the concept of extinction is laid out, with a look at the death of the dinosaurs and the world's other major extinction events. Looking to the present, the book also celebrates the diversity of life on Earth today. Animal profile spreads are packed with photos and include key facts, distribution data, and other awe-inspiring information. Using the classifications of the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN), Animals Alive looks at the current threats facing animals on Earth and reveals how some species have brought back from the brink by conservation.
