The Handbook of Forest Floor Animals

The Handbook of Forest Floor Animals is a reference book that describes some of the small organisms that live in, on, or near the forest floor, in the way that a field guide might. The book describes six types of organisms that live in or on soil: beetles, centipedes and millipedes, crickets, earthworms, pill bugs and sow bugs, and snails and slugs. For each type of organism, information is provided about the organism's body
structures, behavior, habitat, and life cycle. Students use information they find in this handbook to help them identify and label body structures of the organisms they observe firsthand and to answer questions they have about forest floor organisms.
