Book Description

Astrobiology is a multidisciplinary pursuit that in various guises encompasses astronomy; chemistry; planetary and Earth sciences; and biology. It relies on mathematical; statistical; and computer modeling for theory; and space science; engineering; and computing to implement observational and experimental work. Consequently; when studying astrobiology; a broad scientific canvas is needed. For example; it is now clear that the Earth operates as a system; it is no longer appropriate to think in terms of geology; oceans; atmosphere; and life as being separate.

Reflecting this multiscience approach; Astrobiology: An Introduction:

  • Covers topics such as stellar evolution; cosmic chemistry; planet formation; habitable zones; terrestrial biochemistry; and exoplanetary systems

  • Discusses the origin; evolution; distribution; and future of life in the universe in an accessible manner; sparing calculus; curly arrow chemistry; and modeling details

Contains problems and worked examples; and includes a solutions manual with qualifying course adoption
Astrobiology: An Introduction provides a full introduction to astrobiology suitable for university students at all levels.
