Summary

Summary

Kids often hear about the many species facing extinction, but most people don't know that we are discovering new species all the time. Until recently, animals such as the golden-brown mouse lemur of Madagascar and the big barking deer of Southeast Asia were unknown to the scientific community. This book describes how new animal species are discovered, what we now know about these species, and what kind of people seek them out -- and why. Includes a forward by Jane Goodall.
