Details

Biology is the study of living organisms and vital processes. Encompassing cell biology, molecular biology, microbiology, and more, biology is one of the most basic branches of science and is a required course in most high schools. From the discovery of penicillin to the theory of evolution to the demonstration of sex-linked inheritance, Biology profiles 10 individuals who beat the odds and pioneered their way to a permanent place in the scientific community. Each chapter contains relevant information on the scientist's childhood, research, discoveries, and lasting contributions to the field and concludes with a chronology and a list of print and Internet references specific to that individual.

Entries include:

  • Charles Darwin
  • Sir Alexander Fleming
  • William Harvey
  • Antoni van Leeuwenhoek
  • Rita Levi-Montalcini
  • Carl Linnaeus
  • Gregor Mendel
  • Thomas Hunt Morgan
  • Charles Henry Turner
