General description

This book provides easy access to universally accepted symbols, units, abbreviations, and measures of quantity for your scientific communications in the life sciences. Drawing on the authority of the various nomenclatural committees of the many international societies in bioscience, as well as on the editors of prestigious scientific journals, and on eminent individuals active in scientific publishing, Arnost Kotyk brings together the most up-to-date recommendations for using units, symbols, abbreviations, and acronyms in the biosciences.
