New England Flora and Fauna: Library Resources

For Mr. Lord's Inquiry classes.

Books in the Library

The library has many books about animals, plants, and habitats. These are just some examples! See the suggested keywords in the box to the right for some ideas for searching the Destiny library catalog.
TIP: If you are not having luck with your specific animal or plant, try a more general search, such as amphibians if your animal is a frog.

Library Databases

Suggested keyword searches: name of animal or plant ("honeybee" or "birch tree"); state or region ("New England" or "northeast"); habitat ("forest," "wetlands," etc.). To narrow down your search, try combining terms (for example, "honeybee" and "New England")
