About the Author Steve Parker is an author and editor of children’s non-fiction books and websites, chiefly in the areas of nature and the biological sciences. He has written more than 100 titles about the natural world, animals and plants, ecology, conservation, rocks and fossils, mineral wealth, and Earth’s varied and valuable resources— and how human activities are affecting them, both historically and into the future.
