About Reference Materials

Information in reference books gives general information on the subject of biology, including defintions and key terms, brief overviews of concepts, and bibliographies or resources for further study. When beginning research on a topic, this is an excellent place to get starting to help indentify key ideas and themes for your topic, or help focus on a specific aspect of your topic.
