Grade 9 Up-An introduction to 184 scientists from 500 B.C.E. to the present. The selected individuals span a range of countries (though a majority are from Great Britain and the U.S.) and fields; nonbiologists who have had a major impact on the field are also included. The volume is arranged alphabetically; cross-references are included. Each entry contains basic biographical data and a readable essay of 500 to 1500 words. Articles focus on the scientists' work, but contain brief information on family, education, research, and awards. Readers may notice a typographical error in a date under the entry for William Harvey. All entries conclude with further-reading suggestions. Average-quality, black-and-white photographs are scattered throughout. Contents lists are organized under country of birth, country of scientific activity, and year of birth; there is no list by field of specialization. Students researching a biologist from a particular time period will find the chronology useful. Notable Scientists (Gale, 2001) and Scientists (UXL, 1996) contain much of the same information, but libraries needing a resource devoted solely to this specialization will find A to Z to be an adequate tool.
