Summary "A three-volume encyclopedia containing more than 300 signed entries, Discoveries in Modern Science covers the most important discoveries in the fields of biology, physics, and astronomy, intended to meet the needs of students and educators in high schools, community colleges, and four-year colleges, as well as the interested layperson. It represents a wide range of disciplines: biology, medicine, paleontology, oceanography, ecology, geology, linguistics, volcanology, meteorology, and others. Entries rigorously and thoroughly present key scientific concepts, in the context of accessible narratives and rich photojournalism. The set presents an in-depth treatment of "curiosity-led science," as well as directed research that led to important inventions and technologies. All entries provide cross references to related entries in the encyclopedia and a bibliography of resources either cited in the entry and/or to aid in further research"-- Provided by publisher.
