About the Author

John Daintith (BSc, PhD) is an editor at Market House Books Ltd.


Gr 9 Up-These volumes provide clear, concise, and accessible information on a variety of topics. The material in Biology and Chemistry appeared in the publisher's Concise Science Dictionary (2005), but all of the books have been completely revised with hundreds of new entries. Chemistry has 4300 entries and includes physical chemistry, biochemistry, metallurgy, materials science, forensic science, and more. The 5500 entries in Biology touch on such subjects as biophysics, biochemistry, and bioinformatics. Geology, oceanography, paleontology, planetary sciences, volcanology, and mineralogy are just some of the topics covered in the approximately 6250 entries in Earth Sciences. All of the titles provide information on key individuals, and Biology and Chemistry include feature articles on important topics. Simple black-and-white illustrations and diagrams are scattered throughout each of the cross-referenced volumes. Certain entries in each book offer Web links accessible via a companion site. The appendixes are extensive-Biology's includes "Simplified classification of the animal kingdom" and "Simplified classification of land plants," for example, while Chemistry includes guides to "The Greek alphabet" and "Fundamental constants," and Earth Sciences boasts coverage of "Time-Scales" and "Wind Strength." One quibble: pronunciation guides and word etymology are not provided. Still, these titles are must-haves.-Maren Ostergard, King County Library System, Issaquah, WA Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.
