This is the ideal reader for anyone who is considering a career in the life sciences. The various fields and specialties within biology are discussed, as are the educational requirements for biologists in general. Chapters are devoted to careers in the academic world, industry, and government (federal, state, and local). Biographical sketches of a number of famous biologists of this century and a chapter on the status and progress of women and minorities in biology careers round out this comprehensive career guide and source book.
