"Gives a relatively simple, nonsense introduction to topics of interest in general biology to which introductory physics can be applied. Topics include properties of nerve and bone, of the vascular system, kidneys and lungs, and of eyes and ears . . . manipulation of cells with electric fields and navigation by electric of magnetic fields. For most topics, the early history is mentioned, and reference is made to recent work."
