This is a page from Lifecycles, a short pamphlet by Manvir Singh. The mini-book collects illustrated accounts of reproductive cycles—how various flora and fauna create replacements for themselves and how those replacements grow into adults.

Singh is part of CreatureCast, a collaborative, multi-media blog produced by students in Casey Dunn’s Invertebrate Zoology course at Brown University. So, not only is this an awesome educational resource, but it's an awesome educational resource created by a student. (And did I mention that it's CC licensed and free to download?)
