Birds Poster
Birds Poster
16332

24" x 36" full color laminated poster.
This is an especially important poster because it presents the new Sibley-Ahlquist bird classification system. Based on recent DNA studies, this system uses cladistics to reconstruct the evolutionary family tree. Who would have thought that birds as diverse as flamingos, eagles, and penguins would end up in the same clade? However, this revolutionary new system has been widely accepted by North American ornithologists and has made the previous bird classification system obsolete. Although this poster shows true clades, the scientific community continues to use the order names, which are cited.
This is a truly beautiful poster, one greatly appreciated by bird lovers. It certainly enhances the decor of their home or office, yet it presents information that has even greater value. All the bird clades are explored, and all of the many classification changes resulting from the transition from orders to clades are explained. This information has never before been published in such a concise and convenient form, making this poster an essential reference for anyone seriously interested in birds.

Intro to Rocks Poster
Intro to Rocks Poster
16700

36" x 24" full color laminated poster.
This is an outstanding rock identification chart! The introduction explains that each type of rock is the result of a specific mixture of minerals subjected to a clearly defined geological process. It shows and describes the most common rock-forming minerals and variations that occur within rock types.
The bulk of the poster is divided into three sections, one for each rock type: igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic. An illustration shows how they are made, and a photograph shows a natural formation. A dozen other photographs show representative specimens. Each is accompanied by an informative caption citing identifying characteristics and common variations.
A bonus section shows and explains some of the more specialized and popular rock forms, such as geodes, concretions, agates, and meteorites.
This is a great poster for earth science classes. Rock collectors find it invaluable for quick reference.

Insects Identification Poster
Insects Identification Poster
16333

24" x 36" full color laminated poster.
Insects are the most diverse group of animals on Earth. There are more than a million described species, more than all other animal groups combined. Insect collecting is a very popular hobby and is often assigned as a classroom project. With so many species, insect identification is difficult.
This chart presents all the insect orders through a brief description accompanied by detailed pictures of one or more species. A section on anatomy identifies important physical characteristics.
A unique branching system permits the novice to identify a specimen to the order level (beetle, bee, bug, butterfly, etc.). More detailed identification requires professional training and an extensive library.
This poster is extremely popular with collectors, kids and educators. It is widely used in schools and by collectors. This second edition has been graphically streamlined, making it easier to use.

Intro to Minerals Poster
Intro to Minerals Poster
16699

36" x 24" full color laminated poster.
This poster begins by defining a mineral. It then expands on that by exploring atoms, molecules, and crystal structure. The various crystal structures are explained. This is followed by an excellent summary of the mineral classes.
Mineral collectors and students want to identify their specimens. However, specimens of the same mineral can vary greatly in appearance, which can make that a daunting task. Identification is based on a number of properties.
This poster provides an outstanding introduction to those properties: hardness, habit, luster, cleavage, specific gravity, color, streak, and fluorescence. Illustrations are used to explain principles. Photographs of truly outstanding specimens are used as examples.

Intro to Fossils Poster
Intro to Fossils Poster
16698

36" x 24" full color laminated poster.

Fossils were a mystery for thousands of years; then a few pioneering scientists realized that they were the remains or traces of once-living organisms.
Well-known bone-type fossils are actually rocks, the result of a process called mineralization in which minerals replace decaying tissue. This process is shown and explained. All of the other fossil types are also explored.

The rarity of fossils is dramatically presented, and strange things sometimes mistaken for fossils are identified. There’s an introduction to fossil expeditions and a summary of how fossils contribute to our understanding of the earth and life on it.
There is an especially helpful section on the relationships between fossils and geology. It covers the principle of original horizontality, the law of superimposition, the principle of faunal succession, the geological time scale, index fossils, relative dating, and absolute dating.

All of this is conveyed through detailed illustrations showing the processes, excellent photographs of representative specimens, and interesting and informative captions. This poster is a great aid to museum interpretive programs and is extremely beneficial in the study of both life and earth sciences.

24" x 36" full color laminated poster. This poster describes all ten divisions of the plant kingdom. Many representational species are shown including the four divisions of extinct plants. This poster is an ideal partner to our Animal Kingdom Poster (16339). Both posters are great for life science classes, but the non-technical presentation makes them popular with both animal and plant lovers alike.

Arthropods Poster
Arthropods Poster
16335

24" x 36" full color laminated poster.
Arthropods are animals that have an external skeleton. They are the most abundant animals on Earth but are often misunderstood. Spiders, millipedes, and other arthropods are often mistakenly referred to as “insects” and “bugs.” This poster explains the differences.
Each of the five clades (formerly subphylum) is carefully explored. Highly detailed illustrations show an incredible 98 species, many life size. All are identified by both common and scientific names.
Insects account for the great bulk of the arthropods, and this poster includes representatives of all the major orders. The crustaceans include crabs and lobsters as well as shrimp, krill, and even barnacles. Included with them is the giant sea scorpion; this long-extinct animal is the largest arthropod that ever lived, reaching a length of six feet.
This remarkable poster even includes the prehistoric trilobites. They were the dominant life form during the Permian but became extinct. Highly educational, very attractive, and decorative, this poster appeals to teachers, students, collectors, and professional entomologists.

24"x 36" full color laminated poster.
This is a beautiful poster that is cherished by animal lovers, but it’s also an extremely useful educational tool, as it provides a comprehensive overview of the subject. It is divided into three sections, one for each type of mammal: the egg-laying monotremes, the pouched marsupials, and the familiar placental mammals. The latter is divided into 19 subsections, one for each of the orders. Superb, highly detailed illustrations show 98 representative species, including everything from the aardvark to the zebra.
This poster is an excellent way to introduce young children to a great many animals. However, its outstanding organization and presentation make it an invaluable reference chart for teachers, students, and professionals involved or interested in zoology, comparative anatomy, and taxonomy, the naming and classification of life forms.

Eras of Life Poster
Eras of Life Poster
16369

36" x 24" full color laminated poster.
The geological time scale divides the history of the Earth into units of time based on layers of rock (strata). Paleontologists use this scale to establish dates when various species lived. This chart is essential to the study of both earth and life science.
At the top, an introduction explains the geological time scale, its significance, how it was created, and index fossils. The main design consists of strips of illustrations, each presenting a period of geological time. The emphasis is on the last 360 million years when advanced life inhabited the earth. Each geological period is introduced by informative text explaining the origin of its name and its significance. It is followed by magnificent illustrations showing life on land and in the seas, index fossils, and a globe showing the position of the continents.
The most important groups of animals and plants are introduced in the margins through images and captions. They complement the period illustrations that show how the species within the groups changed over millions of years.
