School Library Journal Review

Gr 4-7-Offering more than a tour of wetlands in the southeastern United States, this colorful title looks at how an ecosystem works, how plants and animals interact in their environment, and how all of this is affected by human development. Blaustein discusses the Everglades, and to a lesser extent, the Gulf Coast, but it is the focus on biological communities that makes this volume useful and interesting anywhere. The Everglades is a seriously endangered habitat, and the author touches on some politically charged issues that it faces, such as the destruction of habitat for development and industry and the Everglades Construction Project. The tone is impassioned but not confrontational and is hopeful for the future. Simple, informative maps, lots of clear and attractive photographs, and interesting sidebars are scattered throughout. A couple of science activities are included, as is a list of related organizations.-Susan Oliver, Tampa-Hillsborough Public Library System, FL (c) Copyright 2010.
