This volume includes some lectures delivered by the author before various South American universities and medical organizations. The field of the biologic sciences includes all of the basic medical sciences dealing with living material, and medicine itself. Dr. Menge indicates the background of the various investigations that have been made, traces the history briefly, and indicates the trend not only of discovery in the field of biology but also of biologic thought and theory. His list of noteworthy biologic work and workers is an exceedingly valuable guide for those who want to read generally in the subject and also for those who plan to study abroad. The bibliography, which is extensive, covers contributions by numerous authors, books and periodicals and biologic indexes.
