Book Reviews

The aim of this section of the website is to house occasional reviews of ‘popular science’ books in biology. As a result of the new areas of biology that have been introduced to the Revised and CfE Higher Biology, Higher Human Biology and Advanced Higher Biology courses these books can provide teachers with useful background to the new science they will encounter in these courses. Pupils can also be introduced to these books by their teachers to extend their personal learning in areas of interest to them. Many of these ‘popular science’ books would make a useful addition to Biology Department libraries or to the biology section of the school library; indeed they can make useful suggestions to the school librarian’s purchase list or provide opportunities for sponsors to provide science books for schools!
