336p. 95. LC 88-45476. ISBN 0-8160-1865-0. This compact dictionary includes major terms from all areas of biology. Some definitions are concise, while others are two to three paragraphs long. A number of excellent illustrations can be found throughout the text. For example, in defining the heart in a semi-encyclopedic manner, a labeled picture of the heart, depicting all its primary parts, can be found. This volume is not as comprehensive as many of the other biology dictionaries mentioned. However, it does a fine job defining the major terms that are listed.

In addition, a two-page spread can be found for certain ecological niches, such as the cypress swamp, deciduous forest, desert, and so on. Along with a brief description of the niche, a variety of colored photographs depicting certain animals and plants endemic to the region are present. This volume abounds with excellent colored photographs; most entries are accompanied by a photograph that depicts the animal, plant, or landform. Colored tabs representing the letters A through Z aid the reader.
