The Nuffield Advanced Biology Topic Reviews for students were an integral part of the Advanced Biological Science materials, but each could be read on its own. Thus, students could use them for their current work, or to pursue personal interests. This topic review describes the way that scientists have investigated blood circulation, presents data from experiments and explores the significance of the findings.
