Summary
  • "In Quantities, Symbols, Units, and Abbreviations in the Life Sciences, Arnost Kotyk compiles the most up-to-date recommendations for using units, symbols, abbreviations, and acronyms in publications ranging across the biological sciences. Drawing on the authority of the nomenclature committees of the many international societies in the biosciences, as well as on the editors of prestigious scientific journals, and on eminent individuals active in scientific publishing, this essential reference provides authors and editors with easy access to the authoritative usage of the universally accepted terms they need for clear scientific communication
  • All the symbols, units, and abbreviations are defined, with commentary and some etymological background frequently provided."--Jacket
