Scientists have long debated the relationship between birds and reptiles. After all, there are some physical similarities between the species, from the eggs they both lay to the scales that can be found on their bodies. But what about the differences? Birds have feathers and are warm-blooded. Reptiles slither, crawl, and creep and are cold-blooded. Scientists study these similarities and differences by observing and experimenting, and now you can too. Whether you try the experiments and activities in this book for fun or for a science fair project, you’ll get an up-close and personal view of these two incredible types of animals. Are they related? You be the judge!

America's most populous region is also home to some of the nation's most serenely beautiful country. Tracing a gentle, thousand-mile curve from New York City southwestward to Montgomery, Alabama, the Piedmont connects an arc of urban centers which includes five state capitals, America's largest city, and the national capital. Between the Atlantic coastal plain and the Blue Ridge Mountains, the Piedmont's rolling hills span miles of farmland and forest. Michael Godfrey's Field Guide to the Piedmont--originally published by Sierra Club Books and here newly revised and updated--is an informative and entertaining guide to the entire region's habitats, ecosystems, and rich botanical communities. Focusing on plant succession, geology, soils, climate, and the plants and animals with which we share the land, Field Guide to the Piedmont also features 180 illustrations for easy identification of the Piedmont's principal flora and fauna. A chapter describing and providing directions to over fifty sites of special interest will inspire Piedmont residents to take this field guide in hand and explore their natural surroundings.
