Investigating Islands

By | Copyright Year:2013 | ISBN-13: 9780170229555

The world's oceans are full of islands - over two million of them, in fact!
From gigantic Arctic Islands with towering mountains and huge glaciers, to tiny tropical islands less than a metre above sea level, each island provides a unique environment for the plants, animals and (sometimes) humans that inhabit them.
In this book, you'll discover a wealth of information about some of the world's most fascinating islands - and you'll see why some of the people who choose to live surrounded by water are happy to call their isolated piece of land home.
