Boca Raton, USA: CRC Press, Taylor & Francis Group, 2019. – 867 p. — ISBN-13 978-1-1380-6512-3.Handbook of Astrobiology is designed for astrobiology practitioners to enable them to review the major developments in the field and to learn about the newest discoveries. Since astrobiology is an interdisciplinary field, which draws on various other disciplines such as astronomy, physics, chemistry, biology, geology, planetary science, and philosophy, it is difficult for practitioners to be adequately informed about the new findings in the field, especially if these are not directly related to one’s specific area of investigation. Further, rapid developments in astrobiology result in an ever-increasing number of publications, which makes it difficult to stay current in the field. However, a broad background and up-to-date knowledge of the field are important resources for astrobiologists, so that they can place their own findings in a broader context and integrate them with other findings in the field.
