Review “The very readable biobibliographies collected here provide detailed information concerning 65 women biologists, whose specializations cover a wide variety of subdisciplines. The work joins Grinstein's Women in Mathematics and Women in Chemistry and Physics as premier sources, providing a wealth of excellent material about women in these fields. Articles consist of three parts: 'Life,' 'Work,' and a bibliography that includes works both by and about the scientist. Interesting and well-written biographies include many frank accounts of the obstacles the women encountered. The 'Work' sections describe research in detail but are easy to understand. Many of the living biographees were interviewed, resulting in a number of interesting quotes, a nice touch.... Recommended for all libraries.”–Choice “The foreword indicates a hope that this account of the journeys of remarkable women will both instruct and inspire. Women's contributions in biological sciences are detailed here in deph and in accessible language.... academic libraries with programs in biological sciences and women's studies will find this title and the previous ones in the series very appropriate.”–Booklist/Reference Books Bulletin “...[P]rovides a significant contribution to the emerging literature recovering and revealing the substantial roles of women scientists in the growth and development of the biological sciences....The varied writing styles of the authors, as well as the fascinating work and lives of the scientists themselves, turns what might be a boring reference source into a good read.”–American Journal of Human Biology “The length and depth of the aticles allows the authors to include details that shorter biographies would not have accommodated.”–Rettig on Reference “Recommended for large science libraries as well as for libraries supporting women's studies programs.”–Science & Technology Libraries “The book is an essential reference for any library serving students, teachers, amateurs, and professionals in the sciences, medicine, history of science, and women's studies--and an invitation to browsing. I found it impossible to ration myself to one of these essays at a time; I hope there will be other volumes to follow.”–The Quarterly Review of Biology “Eminently readable....Exceptional....”–TAXON About the Author LOUISE S.
