"A cell is like a tiny factory," explains this book in the Science Concepts series. Find out about how all the parts of cells work together to keep you going. Learn about prokaryotes and eukaryotes, the difference between plant and animal cells, and how cells divide. Sexual reproduction, asexual reproduction, and the stages of meiosis are also discussed. With full-color diagrams and photographs, this book explains the roles of specialized cells, including skin cells, blood cells, neurons, and the cells in connective tissue. A final chapter mentions future avenues of cell research, including cloning, stem cell research, and cell fusion.
