Reading Scientific Images: The iconography of evolution
Mason, R. (Richard) ; Morphet, T. (Tony) ; Prosalendis, S. (Sandra) (2006)
Visual literacy is the ability to read and understand images. While we are taught to read and write words at school, no focused attention is given to teaching the skills to read images other than as ‘art’ or attractive illustrations of the words we read in schools. This book about scientific visual literacy focuses on the most dynamic area of contemporary human discovery: the theory of evolution.
