Description
With more than 2,000 cross-referenced, encyclopedic entries, arranged in chronological rather than alphabetical order, this book for readers 12 and up allows readers to experience science as a progression of understanding that builds on past work. The book includes an index, introductory essays for each time period, appendixes, a glossary, a reading list, and an Internet resource list.

"The book is organized into sections by time periods, such as antiquity, the Renaissance, and the information age. Each section includes an introductory and closing essay, a time line for scientific discoveries, and a few black and white photographs, charts, and illustrations. Supplemental essays are included on topics such as 'Astronomy in the Renaissance,' 'Theories of Geological Change,' and 'Science of DNA.' The entries, which range in length from 50 to 150 words, have identifiers that categorize them into the core areas of biology, chemistry, earth science, marine science, mathematics, physics, space and astronomy, and weather and climate."Booklist
