Encyclopaedic Dictionary of Biology

Eleanor Worthy (Editor) Eleanor Worthy (Compiler)
Synopsis Dictionary is something that one keeps referring to time and again. Whenever the word dictionary is used. One is determined to think of a dictionary of English language. But contrary to that, this series consists of dictionaries on almost all the subject that one can think of, be it economics or genetic engineering, to something so uncommon and least thought about as astronomy. This series is an attempt to provide the readers with a repertoire of terms in almost all subjects that are taught at the university level. The presentation and instructional strategy used in this series have been selected keeping the sole aim of clarity and clear comprehension in mind. The explanation is concise and supported by informative illustrations and examples. This series is designed with the sole objective of creating such glossaries that act as ready reckoners for those who refer to them. The great difficulty with studying biology is the thousands of terms, many of them with Latin origins, that a student has to know and remember. This dictionary gives lucid and detailed explanations of most of such terms – elementary as well as advanced. But, the usefulness of this dictionary does not end here. The Latinised terms are broken into parts and their meanings given, which makes it easier to remember them. There is a scientific basis to tanomocial classifications and names which, once grasped, makes it easier to remember and use them. The conceptual basis of such important theories, as evolution and genetics has been explained at length. A special feature of the dictionary is the thumbnail biographies of famous biologists which, we hope, shall inspire the young students. Lastly, the dictionary contains quite technical scientific details of new machinery used in biological and medical sciences. We are sure the dictionary will be liked by the budding biologists and medical practitioners.
