La Nature et la Vie


    IN a pleasant and easy fashion the writer of this book carries the reader from the beginnings of life to its termination by death. The origin of life on this planet, the vital phenomena of the lower and higher forms of vegetable and animal life, the part played bv bacteria in the fertilisation of the soil, the evolution of living forms, parasitism, the multiplication of animals and plants, the beginning of the end, the problem of death, and the immortality of the protozoa are a few of the subjects dealt with. The book may be recommended as a good popular introduction for the educated but non-scientific reader to general biological problems.
