I have no idea what you mean?

As far as I can see from the main LV page on archive, there is only a single entry:
https://archive.org/details/librivoxaudio?sort=-publicdate

Of course, every book has keywords attached, so you can (and should!) find it when searching for more than one. That's kinda the whole point?

Check the URLS of every entry you find - if they are the same, than there's just one book found in different searches.
Cheers,
Ava.

Ava, niobium,

It's not the book, it's how to read the results of our search.

Click on https://librivox.org/search , then choose Genre/Subject. Scroll down to "Non-fiction > Science > Life Sciences", you'll see "Completed: 36 books | In progress: 3 books", then click on the genre (it's a link https://librivox.org/search?primary_key=0&search_category=genre&search_page=1&search_form=get_results# ). I think the complaint is that instead of showing a single book, we actually list its sections.

I can of course be wrong. I hope niobium explains...

It's cataloged as a collection, although it's all the same e-text (and the author metadata isn't filled in).

Oh I see. No idea how that happened. :?:

Since none of the other books is a collection even though there are several contributers in each, I have fixed this now.
Cheers,
Ava.
