The Ecosystem Series explores jungle, icebergs, swamps, deserts, prairies and reefs. In Who Needs A Prairie?

Review

PRAISE FOR Ecosystem Series: "Patkau introduces readers to the North American Arctic ecosystem efficiently and methodically, discussing habitat, the food chain and seasonal changes, along with the ever-important formation of the iceberg.... Her digitally composed illustrations at times offer informative scenic views, and at times, present readers with more direct scientific information. This, as well as its companion volumes Who Needs a Swamp? and Who Needs a Jungle? offers a clear, readable introduction for budding naturalists and geographers." - The Toronto Star

..".Patkau offers a series of vibrant scenes ... striking illustrations. The text both interprets the visual content ... and offers paragraphs of diverse facts." - Booklist
