Lazar, Alice; Torney-Purta, Judith
Child Development, v62 n6 p1321-33 Dec 1991
Interviewed 99 first and second graders in the fall and spring. Results indicated that children needed to understand the concepts of either the irreversibility or inevitability of death before understanding the concepts of cessation of life functions and causes of death. Children's understanding of human and animal death developed differently. (BC)
