It is a useful book for learning. I was a little disappointed that it turns out a small size book. With the price, it will become costy.

Nice little reference (134 pages) packed with word roots and their definitions - adds a little poetry to the scientific names we come across in insects and others

I bought this to help me pick apart the more difficult words and latin names in our Vertebrate Zoology course... this has been the biggest help ever. You can find the meaning of almost any word, and even make your own words up! I use this book about every 3 minutes when I sit down to study, it's great!

This compact, easy-to-use book is a must for any science-related field of study. By using this book, you learn what the parts of scientific words mean. This provides the student/scientist with an explanation of why a structure or organism has a particular name. This understanding keys the person to remember the term more easily, giving the real meaning to the word instead of the word being just being a large group of letters. I have seen students go from, "How am I going to remember that!" to "AH HA! It makes sense!" As I teach, I frequently give the students the meaning of the root words. This book is where I learned it.

I used this when a bioscience major at Colo State Univ in
the 60's. It was invaluable then and it still remains on
my book shelf as a reference. Thanks Dr. Borror!

As a beginning grad student in hort in 1972, I was introduced to this book by one of my professors. Among all the books I have collected, this is the one I have used most often. I love plants, and this book of words helps me understand and identify the plants I study, and to recognize their features. I often recommend it to my students. I'm glad it's still in print. It's a real treasure.
