Biology: Books

Resources available through the Earl K. Long Library for the study of Biology.

Reference Books

For some research, books are still the way to go; for example, encyclopedias and handbooks for reliable information about different species (especially obscure ones) and physical data. A few books from the Reference section are listed below; contact a librarian, check UNO Library's online catalog, or browse the Reference section (try call numbers starting with Q or R) for more.
