If every known species on Earth were a leaf on a tree, the tree would have almost 2 million leaves. Humans are just one leaf on this tree of life.
Tree of Life, a book for young adults, is a dazzling introduction to the incredible variety of life on Earth, from the team behind the bestselling If The World Were a Village. It shows how living things are classified and interconnected, and how a problem with just one part of the tree of life can have devastating consequences for the whole tree.
