Críticas:

"Biographical entries of 97 women who have made significant contributions to the life sciences from antiquity to the present... The nature and impact of each woman's work is put in lay terms so readers can understand its importance. Few readers will recognize any names other than Rachel Carson and Elizabeth Blackwell--all the more reason to have this book in one's collection. Although students may use it initially for reports, few will leave it without being hooked into reading about others who catch their interest. There are cancer researchers, physicians, ornithologists, environmentalists, horticulturalists, and more, all in one place, ready to inspire and educate YAs... Once teachers become familiar with this book, many worthwhile and diverse assignments could be based on the information it contains. Gender issues, historical period, and career opportunities are all possibilities not immediately obvious from the title. A little promotion could make this a popular resource."-School Library Journal ...".a good one volume reference..."-Catholic Library World "[Recommended for] those with interests in the history of science and to reader who wants to learn more about the role of women in science."-Plant Science Bulletin "The sixty-three practicing scientists and researchers who wrote the entries explain the lives of their subjects in clear prose aimed at a general readership."-Journal of Women's History "Students researching anatomy, biology, botany, cancer, ecology, pharmacology, physiology, zoology, and many other life science fields will find this volume valuable.

Reseña del editor:

This volume features substantive biographical essays on 97 world and American women scientists who have made significant contributions to the life sciences from antiquity to the present, with the emphasis on 20th century women. The essays go beyond the basic facts found in standard biographical dictionaries, however. Developmental influences, obstacles faced and overcome, and the efforts of these women to contribute to their chosen professions in spite of sometimes overwhelming disapproval of the establishment come alive in these portraits. Many of the living scientists profiled contributed interviews and autobiographical statements, which adds a vital and unique element to their profiles. Entries, written by 63 practicing scientists and researchers, explain the scientific work clearly in terms familiar to general readers and high school students. Each entry provides a fact box outlining major life events, including educational and career milestones, and concludes with sources for further reading. Twenty-nine photographs complement the text. Disciplines covered include anatomy, bacteriology, biology, botany, embryology, entomology, genetics, horticulture, medicine, ornithology, pathology, pharmacology, physiology, and zoology. Subjects were selected on the basis of historical importance and recognition awards such as Blackwell, Lasker and Watermann prizes, Nobel prizes, MacArthur Foundation Genius awards, and the National Medal of Science. Seen across time and disciplines, the lives of these dedicated scientists can serve as role models for young women pursuing careers in science.
