It was thought desirable that there should be available to students and others interested in the Biological Sciences an up-to-date work somewhat on the lines of Stormonth’s Manual of Scientific Terms (1879, republished 1903). The subjects selected for treatment are Biology and its allies: Botany, Zoology, Cytology, Genetics, Embryology, Anatomy, Physiology; some terms in Bacteriology and Palaeontology are included. Specific, generic, ordinal, and other systematic names of plants and animals have necessarily been omitted, nor could references to the sources of terms be listed in a volume of moderate size.

After compilation of most of the primary lists and completion of a small number of terms, the work was handed over to I. F. and W. D. Henderson, who prepared the First япо Second Editions, and added to the definitions of nearly ten thousand terms those of some fifteen hundred new terms.. Further revision was undertaken in the preparation of the Third Edition, and a list of abbreviations occurring in biological literature was added. Many definitions were amplified or modified, and the number of terms and cross-references was very considerably augmented, in the Fourth Edition, and a list of equivalent units of measurement was introduced. The text has been further revised and extended in the present, Fifth Edition, many new terms and abbreviations being added.

The method of spelling is in the main that used in Britain, but due attention is paid to American orthography, by means of cross-references or by reproducing in the original lettering terms culled from scientific literature published in the United States. Spelling, however, is not static, as may be illustrated by the tendency to substitute e for the diphthongs ae and oe, and by compound words which may be written as two separate words, or hyphenated, or integrated as one word.

In the statement of derivation of terms, Greek and Russian words have been transliterated, as science and medical students are seldom acquainted with those languages. On the advice...
