            The drama of New Zealand's changeable weather. Are the events we are seeing a sign of permanent change? A compelling, informative and highly illustrated series of investigations into the different types of weather events that occur in New Zealand. It covers the likes of cyclones,... heat waves, snow and drought, recounting gripping eye witness accounts and explaining just what's going on behind them all. Popular science writer Gerard Hutching has found a range of people affected by diverse weather events over the decades and tells their stories, bringing these events to life - from the dramatic to the humorous. A dairy farmer and his quad bike are lifted 5 metres into the air by a cyclone then dropped 100 metres away. An embattled farmer forced to buy feed to keep his herd going through prolonged drought creates 'art' with his arrangement of the grain on a hillside. The science behind each type of weather is then explained in simple accessible terms by the scientists from MetService. And behind it all lies the big question - are these events a result of climate change? An introduction by well-known climatologist Professor James Fenwick begins the discussion. Contents- Weather in a Changing Climate; Understanding the Weather; The Ocean and the Weather; Tropical Cyclones; Rain; Wind; Snow; Drought; Heatwaves; Storm Surge; Thunder and Lightning; Hail; Tornadoes; Fog; Frost.

            Inhabiting a whole kingdom of their own, fungi can be found in every ecosystem. They carpet the forest floor, and hidden fungi decompose matter, feed plants, and affect how animals function. Their beautiful mushrooms come in all colours, shapes, and sizes. Fungal stories include ...the greening of the Earth, when fungi helped plants first grow on land, and the mass destruction of crops through fungal disease. From the villains of the upcoming bananageddon to plastic-eating eco-warriors, there are over 1.5 million fungus species, and a huge, unknown number of unnamed dark types. They affect other creatures, too, for example by helping to break down food, or controlling their minds against their will. Following on from the gorgeous Under Your Feet, and touching on similar topics of conservation and the secret processes within ecosystems, this book of fabulous fungi will intrigue and amaze young readers.
