Biochemist Severo Ochoa, astronaut Ellen Ochoa, planetary geologist Ocampo, chemist Molina, conservation biologist Dallmeier, and physicist Alvarez are profiled in these uneven biographies: while Ellen Ochoa discusses its subject's personal life and experience as a Hispanic woman in a white-male-dominated field, Ocampo focuses on planetary geology, practically relegating Ocampo to the periphery. Photos illustrate all books. Reading list, timeline. Glos., ind. [Review covers these Hispanic-American Biographies titles: Severo Ochoa, Adriana Ocampo, Mario Molina, Ellen Ochoa, Francisco Dallmeier, and Luis Walter Alverez.] Copyright 2006 Horn Book Guide Reviews.
