9783642112713: Encyclopedia of Astrobiology

The interdisciplinary field of Astrobiology constitutes a joint arena where provocative discoveries are coalescing concerning, e.g. the prevalence of exoplanets, the diversity and hardiness of life, and its increasingly likely chances for its emergence. Biologists, astrophysicists, biochemists, geoscientists and space scientists share this exciting mission of revealing the origin and commonality of life in the Universe. The members of the different disciplines are used to their own terminology and technical language. In the interdisciplinary environment many terms either have redundant meanings or are completely unfamiliar to members of other disciplines.

The Encyclopedia of Astrobiology serves as the key to a common understanding. Each new or experienced researcher and graduate student in adjacent fields of astrobiology will appreciate this reference work in the quest to understand the big picture. The carefully selected group of active researchers contributing to this work and the expert field editors intend for their contributions, from an internationally comprehensive perspective, to accelerate the interdisciplinary advance of astrobiology.

Review:

From the reviews:

“This is a work that it would be easy to fall in love with for many reasons: the depth of the scholarship and the breadth of the coverage; the wonderfully reproduced image content; the value to the working scientist or enthused student of science. Scientists and students will find much of reward in even a casual examination of this work. For the academic or even public or school library ... this is certainly one worthy of extremely serious consideration.” (Gareth J. Johnson, Reference Reviews, Vol. 27 (3), 2013)

“Stretching to three thick hardback volumes, the Encyclopedia of Astrobiology is certainly comprehensive. Many entries are pretty substantial and constitute a mini-review article on a particular topic. ... cover all the main points, and are well-supported with carefully chosen graphs and figures. ... is well worth requesting your academic library to order a set. ... Highly recommended.” (Lewis Dartnell, Astrobiology Society of Britain, September, 2011)
