Well, since Biology (or our understanding of it) moves so fast, I was wondering if anyone has any recommendations for a book which summarizes whats been happening in the last 5 (or even 10 in my case) years?
I doubt there is, or could be, such a book. You might get useful suggestions for particular subdisciplines if you say what you're interested in.
I did cast a rather large net :-)
1) Archaea and extremophiles (spl?)
2) when I was yound we only had 2 kingdoms. Why 5 now? Perhaps a potted history.
3) In evolution, Biological clocks and dating techniques. eg DNA drift, variable mutation rates etc.
Thanks Lola, I have Dawkins book and will look for "...1st 4 Billion years..."
Sure it can be spread on toast.
Try potted "Blue Whale" with "Giant Panda" spread as well, yummy.
Ordering on Amazon (or Book Depository)
Just have to wait for my income :-) for cash.
Please keep other recommendations going.
Very early life as "guessed" through biochemistry?
Really, any current thinking on "the start of life".
When looking thru Amazon, as per. yours recommendations, I did order 5 or so of their suggestions on the topic of Biology.
I will list them (and request critiques) when they land on my
