KIRKUS REVIEW

This is an entertaining and informative illustrated survey of biology by the author of The Dancing Bees, aimed at the general reader. In addition to covering all the usual areas in biology, there are outstanding sections on the social groupings of the various species, the relationships of animal life to environment, a discussion of factors in heredity and advances in the field of genetics as well as a rundown on the structure and functions of the five senses. The book will have over 100 illustrations and stands as a fine example of literate writing in science.
