African Savanna

I have lists and lists of books we want to study for science, divided more or less by habitat/biome. We have not read through them all, but I wanted to start posting them so others can use them and so that I don't ever lose them if my computer crashes! Of course any suggestions of books or movies or topics are always appreciated. I'll update these as we do them.
