Media reviews

Praise for the third edition:

"The third edition of this valuable reference work continues to provide a useful survey of the rapidly expanding biological literature, emphasizing theoretical disciplines. [...] Highly recommended for all college and university libraries, and for lower-division undergraduates and higher."
– B. E. Fleury, Tulane University, Choice, 39(9) May 2002, p. 1566

"The third edition of this comprehensive work expands its subject coverage of web-based resources, which was initiated in the second edition. Print resources are described and their online or digital counterparts also noted. [...] Recommended for libraries serving two-year technical and community colleges, four-year liberal arts colleges, and major research universities as well as organization, society, and government agency libraries that have biology as a subject focus."
Science & Technology Libraries, 21:3-4, 211-221

"The book is easy to follow [...] It is a very useful resource for collection development librarians and for graduate students who may want to become familiar with an area of biological sciences. Highly recommended for academic libraries."
Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship, Spring 2002
