I would suggest _CBE Style Manual, A Guide for Authors, Editors, and
Publishers in the Biological Sciences_, prepared by the CBE [Council of
Biology Editors, Inc.] Style Manual Committee, (5th edition).
LC Call No.: QH304.C33
ISBN: 0-914340-04-2
The CBE also publishes _Sci. Writing for Grad.Students: A Manual on the
Teaching of Scientific Writing_ (ISBN: 0-914340-01-8) and _Illustrating
Science: Standards for Publication_ (ISBN: 0-914340-05-0).

Hope this helps.
