Biology for Beginners
by Truman Jesse Moon
Publisher: H. Holt and company 1921
Number of pages: 582
This text is an attempt to present the fundamental facts of elementary biology as clearly and briefly as a reasonable scientific accuracy will allow. The course emphasizes the fact that biology is a unit science, based on the fundamental idea of evolution rather than a forced combination of portions of botany, zoology and hygiene.
