Comprehensive coverage of leading discoveries in biology along with general biology definitions, thought-provoking essays, and biographies of notable biologists present a wide range of valuable information compiled into a single source. Written in an easy-to-understand format, the book helps explain the importance of biology to society, and includes summaries of notable events throughout history related to the discipline.
