BIOLOGY: The Science of Life by Helena Curtis

BIOLOGY: The Science of Life

Email this review


This thorough introduction to biology originated as a textbook--it is straightforward but dry. Mrs. Curtis is, however, a reliable science writer (The Viruses and The Marvelous Animals). Shirley Baty, who supplies the numerous technical drawings, heads the medical illustration department at Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. The book's theme is evolution, which is traced from protozoans to man.
