- Using state of the art color illustrations, concepts are introduced and illustrated with great detail and clarity. High interest boxes in each chapter examine interesting historical developments and findings in the field, and serve to further discuss relevant scientific detail. Chapter pedagogy, self-contained, modular chapters, extensive references for further study, and a substantial support package make this text a compelling learning and teaching tool.
