A wide variety of new and established terms are discussed, including absolute zero, anaphylaxis, cryptography, echolocation, game theory, Kuiper belt, mitochondrion, Munchausen syndrome, quantum mechanics, and refraction.

Each term is defined in clear, nontechnical language, with examples showing the importance of the word both in its field and in daily life. Supplimentary notes highlight the fun facts and amazing discoveries that make learning about science so rewarding.

Explained in nonscientific language and accompanied by examples, the words come from a wide variety of scientific fields of study. Most entries have boxed features containing fun facts and details demonstrating the significance of the word in science and everyday life.

This content will appeal not only to college graduates, but to anyone with an interest in scientific concepts and the latest breakthroughs in the news.
