The New Science of Astrobiology : From Genesis of the Living Cell to Evolution of Intelligent Behaviour in the Universe

Author: Julian Chela Flores
Publisher: Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands : Imprint : Springer, 2001.
Series: Cellular origin and life in extreme habitats, 3.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Bibliographic data : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
Astrobiology is a very broad interdisciplinary field covering the origin, evolution, distribution, and destiny of life in the universe, as well as the design and implementation of missions for solar system exploration. A review covering its complete spectrum has been missing at a level accessible even to the non-specialist. The last section of the book consists of a supplement, including a glossary, notes, and  Read more...

A review covering its complete spectrum has been missing at a level accessible even to the non-specialist. The last section of the book consists of a supplement, including a glossary, notes, and tables, which represent highly condensed `windows' into research ranging from basic sciences to earth and life sciences, as well as the humanities.
