In addition, it can also provide the elements necessary to complete and extend the comprehension of scientific theme text, whether they are the outline of a structure, the artificial color placed on an element to be detached, or an animal life cycle. This elements are produced in a visual way based on the interpretation of a professional who understands both illustration and the respective themes of scientific nature.
