Cells are Life by Larry Fowke, PhD

Published in 2021

 All living organisms consist of cells.  Cells are fascinating structures,  Three types of cells have been identified, bacterial, plant and animal. This book emphasizes plant cells.

Cells are Life would be an excellent reference book for any students taking general biology or cell biology at the university level. It would be a useful addition to high school libraries to strengthen their biology program.  I anticipate that members of the educated lay public will be interested in cells and their importance to humans and all other life forms on earth.
