About the Book

From the Preface

Simple Life Forms is one section of The Joy of Knowledge [encyclopedia]. It contains all the general knowledge my editors and I think most interesting about the vegetable and invertebrate natural world from flowers and trees to single-celled creatures and insects. It has been our intention to present the mass of available information on this important subject in such a way that it will make sense to you, and tell a logical, relevant and coherent story.
