Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0471086258, Paperback)

Which would you rather smell, an anemone or a sea anemone?

Are conifers always evergreens?

Is a peanut a nut that looks like a pea, or a pea that tastes like a nut?

Do moose have horns or antlers?

Don't know the answers? Don't worry! If you can't tell a turtle from a tortoise, a stalk from a stem, or a wasp from a hornet, you're not alone. Lots of people confuse them, and even scientists sometimes have trouble telling certain pairs apart. Now, well-known science and nature writer Gary Soucie helps you understand the differences between many commonly confused parts of the natural world.

Learn how flowers are different from blossoms and why hair isn't the same as fur. Helpful illustrations and fun facts cover everything from five-foot-long salamanders to orchids that look like female bees. So, if you think strawberries are berries and watermelons aren't, or if you wonder how you'll ever learn to tell a frog from a toad, just read this book. You'll enjoy it!
