In response to the popularity and critical acclaim of its other full-color science sets for students, Macmillan Reference USA has developed a comprehensive series of colorful, informative sets in the sciences. The Macmillan Science Library for Students will engage students at many levels -- from middle school and high school -- to nonmajors in college and lay readers in public libraries. This new series offers the most comprehensive views of key areas in the world of science. Each set explores all facets of the topic, offering not only descriptive and analytical information, but also cultural and ethical issues, and career opportunities in many fields of science. Geared to high school and undergraduate levels, this color-illustrated reference has the strength of interdisciplinarity: coverage encompasses animal development, behavior, ecology, and issues (animal testing, rights, habitat loss, etc.). In the entry on animal testing, Ian Quigley (U. of Texas, Austin) stands firmly on middle ground: some experimentation necessary, much of it not, and things are getting better. In "Habitat Loss," Elliot Richmond (Austin Community College) discusses species-endangering anthropogenic causes: agriculture, urbanization, grazing, deforestation, mining, water projects, fire suppression, recreation, and traffic in non-native species. Features include a comprehensive glossary at the end of each volume, specific glossaries in the margins of each entry, and a comprehensive list of entries in 24 categories (e.g. animal groups, cell biology, historical figures in science, and humans and the animal world). In-depth indexes appear in each volume. Of the 25 contributors, 16 hail from institutions in Austin, Texas, while the rest are based elsewhere in the U.S. Annotation c.

Weather observation satellites by Allan B Cobb( Book )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Examines the development of weather satellites that provide continuous real time weather observations and the improvements in forecasting that resulted. With the advent of satellites in the 1960s, scientists have been able to move closer to their goal of providing instant real-time weather observations and accurate forecasts based on complete coverage of global weather systems. Before the widespread use of satellites, the weather conditions over many remote areas and expanses of ocean were unknown, and our picture of how weather circulates around the planet was incomplete. Today we are able to understand how a weather system ten thousand miles away will ultimately affect us, thanks to these images from space

The basics of chemistry by Allan B Cobb( Book )

"A fun-filled introduction to matter, the elements of the periodic table, and atoms, electrons, reactions and bonding, and radioactivity, this volume provides young adults with chemistry examples that reflect their real-world interconnections in science. Key terms, easy experiments, and clear illustrations help to guide students through chemical applications. A chapter about Niels Bohr and his model for the atom honors his contribution to atomic structure and to nuclear fission. Tools and techniques, such as a scanning tunneling microscope, Rutherford's gold foil experiment, and a mass spectrometer, highlight this instructive text that is aligned to the Common Core standards."--
