Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This major revision of A Dictionary of Biology, including over 1,500 new entries, is the most up-to-date biology dictionary available. Including 4,000 clear and concise entries, it covers all the commonly encountered terms and concepts in biology, biophysics, and biochemistry, as well as terms from medicine and palaeontology taking into account the recent advances in these fields. Conforming to the recommendations of the Institute of Biology, both in its definition of terms and system of classification, this superb dictionary offers authoritative coverage of current areas of study such as molecular biology, genetics (including genetic engineering), and biotechnology, and new areas such as food technology, geomicrobiology, and glycobiology. It is the perfect reference source for anyone interested in this dynamic field.

Synopsis:

This is an ideal reference for students and nonscientists seeking explanations of widely used terms from biology, biophysics, and biochemistry, as well as key terms from paleontology and medicine. The entries are clear and concise, providing both straightforward definitions and invaluable background information, and are supplemneted by helpful line drawings and a range of tables of essential scientific information. A major feature is the network of cross references, which enables the reader to place any entry in a broader scientific context.
