Overview

The American Heritage Science Dictionary


The American Heritage Science Dictionary covers all major fields of science.
Over 8,500 entries are written in clear language and are enhanced by 350 illustrations, 175 feature notes, and 320 biographies. New to this updated edition is the most recent element, roentgenium, as well as a revised table of the elements.

This is the perfect reference for people looking to improve their science literacy or understand today’s science news.
