A North American zoologist introduces this volume by paraphrasing famous scientist/conservationist Jane Goodall: "We will only care about our wildlife if we understand it." To increase young adult readers' understanding of this continent's animal diversity, this book features 85 species from the American alligator to the wood warbler. Entries for each animal include its scientific name; a species description; key facts about its distinctive features, diet, breeding, life span, habitat, distribution, and status (common, rare, vulnerable, or conservation-dependent); distribution map; and color photographs.
