About this deal

G. Wells, who had published The Outline of History a decade earlier, selling over two million copies, desired the same sort of treatment for biology. Colorful images are a powerful tool to learn many scientific concepts, and help to retain information.

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. For some people this would be fine but for me it wasn't great in audio book format for what I wanted. Roark Centennial Professor in Integrative Biology and the Director of the Center for Computational Biology and Bioinformatics at the University of Texas at Austin, where he also has directed the School of Biological Sciences. The book is very complete and provides a very well documented introduction to all the main concepts in biology, including interesting real-life examples and great intuitive figures. The CD-ROM has flashcards, animated tutorials (videos and sound), games, self-quizzes (small) and large chapter quizzes (multiple choice) with explanations for every answer you got incorrect or correct.Volume 1: The Cell and Heredity contains only chapter 1-20 of the tenth edition of the main work, making it perfect for shorter courses which focus on the cell and heredity. Active learning is a priority throughout the text and media, including in the brand new and unique Active Learning Guide, giving instructors the support they need to encourage students to "learn by doing.

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. This could be terribly dry material in other hands, but Nowicki is a very good speaker, and makes things seem alive. He is the Director of the Dean’s Scholars Program of the College of Natural Sciences and Director of the University's Biodiversity Center. His book had already included the new domain designations and included the reasons as why they were being changed.She has taught courses in introductory animal biology, entomology, insect ecology, and chemical ecology and has received awards at the regional and national level for distinguished teaching from the Entomological Society of America.

When Junk DNA (via retro viralesque means) was talked about as a viable possibility, BTW Junk DNA has been proven wrong.Most recently, her work has focused on the neurobiology of social behavior and the physiology of chemical defenses in amphibians and reptiles. These materials may not be copied, distributed, sold, shared, posted online, or used, in print or electronic format, except in the limited circumstances set forth in the Macmillan Learning Terms of Use and any other reproduction or distribution is illegal. Life continues and improves its focus on experiments and data, ensuring that students learn the skills they need to succeed in their careers. Students needing extra practice with data analysis can use the Online Companions to every Work with the Data exercise in the book. A new online, interactive version of the in-text Statistics Primer offers students the opportunity to actually perform statistical analysis and calculations.

Now i know i have just blitzed this audiobook, but i still encourage you, dear fellow layman consumer, to at least consider this audiobook.Hillis has taught courses in introductory biology, genetics, evolution, systematics, and biodiversity. In fact, being a rather visual, hands-on learner, I sometimes found the step-by-step diagrams easier to follow than the text itself.
