Album of Science : the Biological Scienc by Merriley Borell

In this companion to the volume on physical sciences, nearly 400 bandw illustrations chronicle the development of biological sciences in the 20th century. Included are photographs of people, equipment, experiments in progress, and work settings, as well as reproductions of manuscript pages, optical and electronic micrographs, paintings, sketches, and cartoons. The chapters, each with a brief introduction, are arranged in sections that cover the state of the field at the beginning of the period; experimental methods; the transformation of natural history into such disciplines as paleontology, embryology, and ecology; the life processes, such as structure, molecular biology, and the origin of life; research on humans; applications to social needs; and an overview of the field and its effects.
