Publisher: H. Holt & company
ISBN/ASIN: B00085PA70
Number of pages: 616

Description:
Biology has now reached such development that it comprises a large amount of information and knowledge which is not only of the first practical importance to the layman but is also susceptible of being organized into a coherent set of principles suitable for presentation to the ordinary freshman or to the lay public. This necessarily involves stressing principles rather than factual details and limits discussion to such topics as do not put an undue strain on the reader's knowledge of related sciences such as physics, chemistry, and geology.
