Learn about the amazing research that is revolutionizing biology, from advances in medicine to genetic engineering.

- Is there an animal that can survive in outer space?
- How long does a face transplant take?
- Can we 3D print new organs?

Meet the world’s toughest bacterium and a biologically immortal flatworm whilst learning about epigenetics, superbugs, nanomedicine and cloning. Extreme Biology is a compelling guide to developments at the very forefront of science – a must-read for anyone wishing to understand, and engage with, modern biology.

Basher's unique illustrations combine with chatty, first-person text by expert author Dan Green to hook even the most reluctant readers and help them to understand the science behind the headlines. This is the ideal companion to Basher Science: Biology and other titles in the Basher Science series.
