Remarkable Biologists : From Ray to Hamilton Paperback
Following on from the success of his two previous books, Remarkable Mathematicians and Remarkable Physicists, Ioan James now profiles 38 remarkable biologists from the last 400 years.
The emphasis is on their varied life-stories, not on the details of their achievements, but when read in sequence their biographies, which are organised chronologically, convey in human terms something of the way in which biology has developed over the years.
Scientific and biological detail is kept to a minimum, inviting any reader interested in biology to follow this easy path through the subject's modern development.
