Abstract:

The basics of major areas of science are described and illustrated in this work that resembles the general New York Public Library Desk Reference. Chapters on scientific measurements and symbols as well as a section on time are followed by chapters devoted to the major scientific disciplines as well as meteorology, environmental science, computer science and engineering. Each chapter has a narrative about the discipline and charts, facts and other illustrations. Biographies of famous scientists, historical highlights, terms and a bibliography relevant to each science are included. There is a final chapter with directory information about science resources such as zoo, aquariums and planetariums, parks and caves, and periodicals. An index provides access to ready reference information. Recommended for all secondary collections.
