Encyclopedia of Life Sciences
Nature Encyclopedia of Life Sciences includes 3,000 original peer-reviewed articles written by an international roster of 5,000 experts in their fields.
Aimed at researchers, students and teachers, articles provide comprehensive and authoritative coverage, written by leaders in the field. Color illustrations and tables accompany articles, with appendix and glossary material providing information for the non-specialist. All articles have been peer-reviewed to ensure a balanced representation of the literature. Articles are divided into three different categories indicating their level of complexity: Introductory, Advanced and Keynote. Introductory articles have been written primarily for undergraduate and non-specialists. Advanced articles provide a more detailed discussion of specialist subjects. Keynote articles provide a platform for debate where controversial issues and ‘hot topics’ can be discussed.
