Welcome to Nature Book Club! Here we will share what our book club is reading each month!
This month we focused on books about ecotones. Ecotones are transition zones between biomes at the larger scale, or ecosystems at the smaller scale. Some examples we learned about were salt marshes and other wetlands, beaches, and the boreal forest.
