More About This Book

Overview

Biology holds answers to some of the most pertinent questions of evolution. It is in this context that General Biology by Leonas Lancelot Burlingame holds its own as it encapsulates all the major strands in the subject while consciously ensuring that the book is relevant to the layman as well as professionals with domain knowledge. The reader will be pleased to find discussions on principles of biology rather than factual data that might be difficult to comprehend.

Spread across numerous chapters, the underlying theme in General Biology by Leonas Lancelot Burlingame revolves around interdependence of organisms. Broken into sections with a total of 44 chapters that cover the life cycle of plants and animals, the author deconstructs rather complex explanations into easy summaries with lots of diagrams. The book draws out important differences between man and other living beings to show why human beings are at the epitome of the evolutionary cycle.

This work borrows from more specific insights into plants, insects and other organisms by various scholars to provide a holistic view of biology. Unlike some other works, the reader can sift through concepts without going through the book in its entirety. The clear distribution and breakup of key concepts makes General Biology a ready reference for students of the subject as well as casual readers alike.
