About this deal

A new in-text Visual Summary takes the place of standard text-only summaries to help students better master concepts and competencies via a visual trigger (a key in-text figure) and short concise text entries, to aid their memory. From the first edition to the present, Life has set the standard as the most balanced experiment-based introductory biology text. She heads an effort at Oberlin, funded by the HHMI Inclusive Excellence program, to enhance the climate for and success of a diverse student population in STEM.

I have to be honest and say this was the toughest course I have taken yet in the Great Courses I own. one take' Nowicki's mouth works much faster than his brain so the narration crashes every few sentences.It contains information on nearly all topics (not that in depth for some though) and has online resources to accompany it. The book was originally serialised in 31 fortnightly parts, published in 3 volumes in 1929–30 and in a single volume in 1931. Of historic interest is Book Three – The Incontrovertible Fact of Evolution, [23] comprising five chapters; I. Ah, the holy grail of textbooks: To find a textbook that is completely clear, explains all aspects of the subject, lets you understand rather than just memorize so you can think independently on the subject and actually enjoyable to read. A lot of the content in the first half would only really be followable with diagrams etc in front of you.

More than any other general biology text, Life focuses students on the experiments that led to the discoveries that have shaped modern biology. Recaps for each Key Concept include Questions (all Bloom's levels 2-4) that test their mastery of the key concept. Hillis has taught courses in introductory biology, genetics, evolution, systematics, and biodiversity. However, unless you are already a biology graduate and use this for nostalgia (as I have personally with physics courses), you will need to be making notes and using reference material.These materials are being provided solely for instructional use by instructors who have adopted Macmillan Learning's accompanying textbooks or online products for use by students in their courses. His clear explanation of the concepts with bright, colorful pictures have helped my students to understand biological concepts for the AP Bio exam as well as preparing them for college. Devoted to fostering science literacy, she has published numerous articles and five books on insects for the general public.

Maybe this is common in many modern textbooks nowadays but I have yet to experience it and I love it. This systematic review aims to investigate the effectiveness of lifestyle interventions, pharmacotherapy, and bariatric surgery on treating obesity in SCBT. In the lab, he utilizes different yeast species to study spontaneous mutations using a combination of both mutation-accumulation and adaptation experiments. Textbooks like those are incredibly rare and they are worth their weight in gold once you find them. All of which also earn us Courier Printing Company’s Green Edition designation for reducing our environmental footprint.clapping between each lecture can be a little much, whether through headphones or a fairly decent Hi-Fi. The Eleventh Edition of Life: The Science of Biology retains its reputation as the book with the highest quality content, clarity of language, and experimental emphasis, and the new focus and features make it a Life worth investigating. Thanks to the success of the book, Huxley was able to give up teaching and devote himself to administration and experimental science.
