Summary:Intended for browsing by educated persons such as biologists, psychologists, sociologists, and other "reflective people who see in biology the science most relevant to the understanding and melioration of the human condition." Lengthy enties. Index.

In the spirit of Voltaire--and occasionally in the spirit of P. G. Wodehouse--the Medawars have crafted for the life sciences a source of reference that is meant for browsing, a book both authoritative and tilled with delights.
