Readers learn about sexual and asexual reproduction, how the pollination process works, vertebrate and invertebrate reproduction, Darwin s theories on evolution, and the life cycles of different species. Further, they are introduced to the mechanics of reproduction including the passage of genetic information from parent to offspring, cell division, and the structure of DNA. Human reproduction is also covered, with topics including the male and female reproductive systems, conception, pregnancy, the stages of labor, as well as human development from birth to death. Finally, a biography of geneticist Barbara McClintock is featured, which adds a unifying theme to the overall study of reproduction and how traits are passed from one generation to the next. The eye-catching imagery and diagrams of this dynamic resource make the topic approachable yet authoritative.
