Life Sciences

The CRC Press Life Science Handbooks present cutting-edge research collections across multiple areas of agriculture, including crop, plant,and soil sciences; herbal medicine; laboratory animal science; and microbiology. The collection features volumes that set the agenda for future research as well as covering more established areas of Life Science with comprehensive, up-to-date, definitive reference works. This is an invaluable resource for researchers interested in field-defining work from leading academics in their respective professions. As long as there are a minimum of titles available within a subject area then these titles can be purchased within a Subject Collection. New Subject Collections are created annually as new titles are added to the platform.
