By Carol Ballard

  • Paperback
  • £8.99

Explore all there is to know about the life cycles of living organisms. A great revision tool for Key Stage 3 Science!

Find out how our plant classification system works and look at how scientists use it to identify and group plant species. This book examines the features required to classify a plant, the key plant kingdoms and the plants that fall within them. This also looks at the variation between and within plant species and debates how and why such variations have occurred.

Includes fieldwork investigations that show students at Key Stage 3 how to classify plants in their area and fascinating fact boxes that offer in-depth information on topics such as mutation. An activity project shows students how to create their own classification key.

The six books in the Living Processes series look at the processes all living organisms must carry out in order to stay alive. From feeding and drinking through to breathing and reproducing, it explores the differing ways in which organisms carry them out.
