Summary
"The dynamic nature of science and scientific progress has required a completely revised, updated and expanded version of this book, which remains the most wide-ranging and comprehensive dictionary for the study of natural history in its broadest sense. The revision - which now includes over 11000 entries - retains the style of the original: a working dictionary providing brief definitions for students, teachers, researchers and others having an interest within the broad arena of biodiversity studies." "The coverage cuts across classical disciplines such as botany, zoology, bacteriology, mineralogy, palaeontology and so forth, focusing particularly on concepts, strategies and methodologies."--Jacket
