Encyclopedia of Life Sciences

by Anne O'Daly


Written for grades 7 and higher and revised with current research for this second edition, this well-illustrated 13-volume encyclopedia presents entries on a vast array of topics. Each entry is cross-referenced and includes a short list of books for further study; many entries feature sidebars highlighting particular topics. Among the many subject areas covered are agriculture, anatomy, botany, ecology, genetics, microbiology, pathology, and zoology. Each volume contains an index for that volume; and v.13 contains a full index, subject indexes, a glossary, bibliography (organized by subject), list of websites, and list of phyla within the five kingdoms. The editorial board is substantial, with specialists based mainly in the US, but working also at universities, hospitals, and museums in Spain, the Netherlands, Canada, the UK, New Zealand, and Australia.
