Summary
"The Facts On File Dictionary of Biology, Fourth Edition contains approximately 3,700 cross-referenced entries that explain, clearly and concisely, the most frequently used terms in modern biological science." "Revised and expanded since the previous edition published six years ago, this edition contains more than 300 new entries that articulate advances in research. The most important new element in the dictionary is the inclusion of pronunciation symbols for more than 2,500 entries not in daily use. The fourth edition features two new tools - a "Guide to Using the Dictionary" that explains the main features of dictionary entries and a "Pronunciation Key" that carefully details how to interpret pronunciation symbols inserted next to an entry." "In addition to 60 line drawings, the dictionary includes a bibliography and appendixes - schema of the Animal Kingdom and the Plant Kingdom, an illustrated chart of amino acids, and a list of Web sites." "The Facts On File Dictionary of Biology, Fourth Edition will benefit students, teachers, university and public libraries, and professionals in biology or related fields seeking comprehensive coverage."--BOOK JACKET
