Survivor's science on an island
Peter D Riley
UK Publication Date

This book examines the science skills you would need to survive on an uninhabited island. It begins with a map showing where these islands are located in the world. The text then looks at the features of these islands and at how you might use these features to help you to survive if you were on an expedition in these regions.

Aspects of survival are considered and each one is supported by a science activity which the readers can perform using everyday materials and equipment. For example, it shows you what to wear, how to find your way, stay safe and, if necessary, be rescued.

There is an easy-to-follow activity on every other spread.

Here's what you say about us...

Peter Riley has written books, websites and CDRoms on science subjects from astronomy to zoology. He was Head of Science in a large secondary school for seventeen years before becoming a full-time writer in 1996.

It is always desirable to put scientific learning into a real, relevant, and hopefully enjoyable, context. This is the success of the 'Survivor's Science' series, which explores the science of each habitat and the application of scientific thinking in order to tackle its specific survival problems. The series is novel and very well thought-out. Formation and dynamics of each habitat are clearly explained, with perceptive use of illustrations and supporting photographs. A key feature is the use of activities that openly model the scientific enquiry process of observation.
