Scientists are discovering new species everyday. Why are so many new species turning up? Advancements in technologies allow scientists to safely study remote parts of the world that were previously impossible to visit. DNA testing and genetic sequencing has become instrumental in identifying new species. Meanwhile, genetic modification has become a hot topic among scientific communities, adding a new dimension to our already-teeming pool of life on Earth. In the riveting pages of this groundbreaking book, readers will meet scientists from around the world who search for new species on our planet -- with everything from submarines to spaghetti strainers! Adventure and discovery wait in the depths of the oceans, Earth's varied surfaces, the vast expanse of sky, and beyond. Elin Kelsey's outstanding narrative, complemented by stunning photos, draws readers right into the field with intrepid researchers, and into a world of wondrous and surprising forms of life.
