“With a satisfying mix of text and colorful photographs, this series explores Earth’s varied and fascinating ecosystems. Each spread covers a succinct amount of information relating to the ecosystem, where in the world it is located, and the flora, fauna, and insects that inhabit it. Eyecatching text boxes highlight interesting facts. Also addressed are the challenges confronting the environment, whether due to climate change or other human-created problems, as well as suggestions for how people can better care for the ecosystem. The titles end with an infographic-style food web. VERDICT Libraries needing to update environment-related collections can’t go wrong with this option.”

“These books in the Earth’s Ecosystems series manage to stuff quite a lot of information into 32 pages. Each book covers one general type of ecosystem, and most also cover specific examples that fall under the larger category. Desert Ecosystems veers between describing general types of deserts and more interesting case studies, such as the Mojave and the Sahara. Forest Ecosystems likewise holds readers’ attention by interspersing spreads of general information with spreads about specific forests, such as the Congo rain forest, the redwood forest, and Canada’s boreal forest. Marine Ecosystems dives right into the intertidal zone, introducing an additional type of marine ecosystem every two pages, with more general information clustered at the end. Tundra Ecosystems, uniquely for the series, focuses on one fairly uniform biome, distinguishing only particular features of the Arctic. The books’ relatively dense text is broken up by a photo or diagram on each page as well as numerous fact boxes. Some of the fact boxes lead, somewhat confusingly, with a numerical statistic that is explained below, along with several vaguely related bullet points. Other boxed features are clearer, including ‘Think about It’ questions addressed directly to the reader. Overall, the books’ rich level of detail and information will likely appeal to upper-elementary readers.”
