5.0 out of 5 stars Gene switching guide, 22 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Gene regulation is revealing so much and this is a brilliant book on the subject. A must for any young or as in my case, old, biologist. This field has taken off since I retired and if I was starting my career again this is an area of biology I would consider entering. So if you are 16 and thinking about a career in biology read this book in preference to the Double Helix - which is good, but now a history book. It will impress the hell out of admision tutors and you will see how extrodinary modern biology has become.

5.0 out of 5 stars Look ever closer, 22 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Since retireing as a professional biomedical researcher I have returned to my childhood roots of investigating the wonderful diversity of life. I have been gathering easy to use taxonomic guides and this is excellent of the newer photographic type. I find good drawings compliment photographs so ideally guides would contain both. The life history information is fascinating and I have learnt even more extrodinary aspects of insect diversity - there are some nasty critters out there. The keys are very well illustrated and focus on features that do not require any dissection. I can,t help but feel in the days of face recognition software that there should be some way of using a computer based system for identification. This sort of photographic guide is a good starting point for the development of this type of approach. I am not an expert on this group of insects, but for a budding insect spotter this is a very approachable and well organised book.
