Description : BIOLOGY, Seventh Edition by Solomon, Berg, and Martin continues to be the best-liked and most student-friendly introductory majors text available. In this edition the authors have created a learning system that makes the chapters easier to navigate and provides a variety of ways for students to learn the material. "Learning Objectives" are now strategically placed throughout the chapter following major headings, and there are review questions at the ends of these major sections. "Chapter Summaries" are now organized around the "Learning Objectives" as well, making it easier for students to return to the place in the book that can help them work through the end-of-chapter material. Icons throughout the chapter direct students to the BiologyNow CD and tells them what they will find there. BiologyNow, the new Student CD-ROM for BIOLOGY Seventh Edition, is also based on these "Learning Objectives" to further reinforce the text's concepts. The BiologyNow CD, fully integrated with the Seventh Edition text, provides access to diagnostic pre-tests for each chapter. It also automatically generates customized learning plans for students, directing students to the information in the book, ancillaries and media program that will help them master specific concepts. Post-tests allow students to assess their progress as well. And now Brooks/Cole offers vMentor, a FREE online live tutoring service. Students can ask questions, get answers, and they don't need to set up appointments! For instructors, a Multimedia Manager provides the text art in PowerPoint form. Instructors also receive an Instructor's Guide, ExamView Electronic Testing and WebTutor course management options. Solomon, Berg, and Martin have gone beyond presenting facts for memorization -- they have created a well-designed pedagogical system through their use and reuse of chapter "Learning Objectives," which is supported by an unbelievable package of materials for instructors and students.

Description : Designed for a one or two semester non-majors course in introductory biology taught at most two and four-year colleges. This course typically fulfills a general education requirement, and rather than emphasizing mastery of technical topics, it focuses on the understanding of biological ideas and concepts, how they relate to real life, and appreciating the scientific methods and thought processes. Given the authors' work in and dedication to science education, this text's writing style, pedagogy, and integrated support package are all based on classroom-tested teaching strategies and learning theory. The result is a learning program that enhances the effectiveness & efficiency of the teaching and learning experience in the introductory biology course like no other before it.
Description : This volume provides a revised and updated introduction to the techniques of molecular biology and its industrial applications. It should be of particular benefit to undergraduates and researchers in other biological areas.
Description : "(A) lively book . . . on how biologists study living things. . . . Its range is enormous. . . . This is an old-fashioned book, to be read slowly, more than once, and to be thought about afterward".--Ann Finkbeiner, "The New York Times Book Review". Chart.
Description : Solomon/Berg/Martin, BIOLOGY -- often described as the best majors text for LEARNING biology -- is also a complete teaching program. The superbly integrated, inquiry-based learning system guides students through every chapter. Key concepts appear clearly at the beginning of each chapter and learning objectives start each section. Students then review the key points at the end of each section before moving on to the next one. At the end of the chapter, a specially focused Summary provides further reinforcement of the learning objectives. The ninth edition offers expanded integration of the text's three guiding themes of biology (evolution, information transfer, and energy for life) and innovative online and multimedia resources for students and instructors Important Notice: Media content referenced within the product description or the product text may not be available in the ebook version.
Description : The Third Edition of Molecular Biology: Genes to Proteins is a comprehensive guide through the basic molecular processes and genetic phenomena of both prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells. Designed for undergraduate and first year graduate students, this multi-purpose text has been completely updated to include many important advances made in the field of molecular biology. Maintaining the original structure-function approach evident in the first two editions of David Freifelder's classic text, this book provides students with an accessible overview of molecular biology before moving into more in-depth discussions. Broken into six sections, topics are strategically arranged to cover basic information that is necessary in understanding the more advanced topics focused on in later sections. Section 1 and 2, Protein Structure and Function and Nucleic Acids and Nucleoproteins provide the information required to Understand The chemical basis of molecular biology. Section 3, Genetics and Virology provides information required to Understand The biological basis of molecular biology. Section 4, DNA Metabolism explores DNA replication, repair, and recombination in bacteria, eukaryotes and archaeons. Section 5, RNA Synthesis and Processing examines mechanisms that bacteria, eukaryotes, and archaeons use to synthesize RNA, regulate RNA syntheses, and process transcripts to form mature RNA molecules. Section 6, Protein Synthesis describes the structure and function of the bacterial protein synthetic machinery in bacteria, eukaryotes and archaeons.

Description : The subjects of stress and animal welfare are currently attracting immense interest. This book brings together a range of perspectives from biomedical research (including human health and animal models of human stress) on stress and welfare, and assesses new approaches to conceptualising and alleviating stress.
Description : Cell biology is a fascinating branch of biological sciences, providing answers to hitherto unanswered questions. It is the mother science to areas such as Molecular Biology, Molecular Genetics, Biotechnology, Recombinant DNA technology etc. During the last few decades, the science of cell biology has grown at an unprecedented pace with the consequence that voluminous information has accumulated on the subject. Cell and Molecular Biology is intended as a textbook for graduate (Honors) and postgraduate students of Life Sciences. It is being prepared in accordance with the UGC guidelines.
Description : Karp continues to help biologists make important connections between key concepts and experimentation. The sixth edition explores core concepts in considerable depth and presents experimental detail when it helps to explain and reinforce the concepts. The majority of discussions have been modified to reflect the latest changes in the field. The book also builds on its strong illustration program by opening each chapter with “VIP” art that serves as a visual summary for the chapter. Over 60 new micrographs and computer-derived images have been added to enhance the material. Biologists benefit from these changes as they build their skills in making the connection.
