Overview

All life is cells - cells working alone and cells working together. Even the largest creature started off as just a single cell.

Cells are life's building blocks. A cell cannot be seen without a microscope, yet this tiny chemical package holds all the ingredients of life. All living things are made up of millions and millions of cells working together. This revised and updated edition of the Cells & Life series explores all aspects of cells, including brief overviews of important scientific achievements in the field.

The Diversity of Life explores how cells hove formed the dazzling array of life that we see around us. No one knows how many millions of different species there may be on our planet, and new ones are discovered every year. Scientists classify living things into different groups in order to help make sense of this diversity of life. This book looks of the way classification has changed over time, including a recent suggestion lo classify living things into three domains rather than six kingdoms.
