Rachel Carson was an American biologist, conservationist, science and nature writer, and catalyst of the modern environmental movement. She studied biology in college at a time when few women entered the sciences, and then worked as a biologist and information specialist for the US government. She is best remembered for her book Silent Spring, which exposed the widespread misuse of chemical pesticides in the United States and sparked both praise and fury. In addition to exploring Carson's personal life and scientific career, Rachel Carson and Ecology for Kids will introduce readers to such concepts as the components of ecosystems, the needs of living things, energy cycles, food chains and food webs, and adaptations. This lively biography includes sidebars and twenty-one hands-on activities that are sure to inspire the next generation of scientists, thinkers, leaders, agricultural producers, environmental activists, and world citizens.
