Summary
Every living thing on Earth is part of a life cycle: the journey from emerging as a new organism, through the stages of growth and development, to becoming an adult that can reproduce new organisms of the same type. The journey is full of big challenges, and this book explores the extreme tactics some organisms use to make sure their life cycles succeed. From a zombie ant fungus to tapeworms that live in intestines, this book is full of fascinating, gory and extreme information. The Savage Nature series explores life science and life on Earth at its most extreme, from the fight for survival from birth to death through to the way that organisms have adapted to survive in extreme habitats. The series offers high-interest, engaging information, fascinating fact boxes and an in-depth exploration of the most exciting aspects of life science
