  • About Life Science

    Life Science improves our lives and informs our personal as well as societal decisions.  Our health depends on the latest research in laboratory animal science, genetics, and cellular and molecular biology. Environmental stewardship depends on knowledge of terrestrial and marine and aquatic ecosystems and organisms.  CRC Press publishes books from leading scientists on molecules to global environments, and on the distant past to the latest research findings. We publish for biomedical researchers, scholars in genetics, cell, developmental, molecular, and evolutionary biology, and researchers in ecology and the environmental sciences.
