Shoot back in time 4.5 billion years to see how planet Earth was formed and then leap into the future to see what happens when stars die. You'll take a closer look at the life cycles of environments, too. Discover how a river forms and changes over time. Find out how a tree grows and all of the other life cycles it supports within it. See the amazing sculptures the oceans make out of cliffs. Dive beneath the surface to see how coral reefs form, and what causes them to die. Follow the life cycles of weather - from water cycles to ice ages, to give you a better grasp of the climate situation we find ourselves in now. From the single-celled amoeba to how the Earth has formed, the life cycles in this book have been carefully chosen to give you an amazing overview of the universe, and how everything is inevitably linked. Filled with facts to amaze your friends as well as beautifully detailed illustrations by Sam Falconer and stunning photography, Life Cycles gets to grips with the essence of life itself.
