As the amount of information in biology expands dramatically, it becomes increasingly important for textbooks to distill the vast amount of scientific knowledge into concise principles and enduring concepts.As with previous editions, Molecular Biology of the Cell, Sixth Edition accomplishes this goal with clear writing and beautiful illustrations. The Sixth Edition has been extensively revised and updated with the latest research in the field of cell biology, and it provides an exceptional framework for teaching and learning. The entire illustration program has been greatly enhanced.Protein structures better illustrate structure–function relationships, icons are simpler and more consistent within and between chapters, and micrographs have been refreshed and updated with newer, clearer, or better images. As a new feature, each chapter now contains intriguing openended questions highlighting “What We Don’t Know,” introducing students to challenging areas of future research. Updated end-of-chapter problems reflect new research discussed in the text, and these problems have been expanded to all chapters by adding questions on developmental biology, tissues and stem cells, pathogens, and the immune system.

One of the very best things about organic chemistry is actually doing experimental work at the beneh. This applies not only at the profes sionallevel but also from the earliest stages of apprenticeship to the craft as a student. The fascination sterns from the nature of the sub ject itself, with its vast array of different types of reaction and its al most infinite variety of different chemical compounds. Each reaction and each new compound pose their own particular problems to chal lenge the skill and ingenuity of the chemist, whether working in a first-year teaching la bora tory or at the frontiers of research. This book is intended to provide basic guidance in the essential experimental techniques used in a typical undergraduate course. It gives concise coverage of the range of practical skills required, from first-year level when students may have no previous experience, up to final-year level when students are usually involved in more complex and dem an ding experimental work in supervised research projects. Our objective was to produce a handbook of techniques that could be used with a variety of practical courses throughout a student's whole period of study. Those who run practical courses generally have strong feelings about what particular experiments or exercises are appropriate for their own students, and it is rare that a book of experiments suitable for one department is acceptable to another.
Ecology: Concepts and Applications by Molles places great emphasis on helping students grasp the main concepts of ecology while keeping the presentation more applied than theoretical. An evolutionary perspective forms the foundation of the entire discussion. The book begins with the natural history of the planet, considers portions of the whole in the middle chapters, and ends with another perspective of the entire planet in the concluding chapter. Its unique organization of focusing only on several key concepts in each chapter sets it apart from other ecology texts.

Offering a different, more engaging approach to teaching and learning, Organic Chemistry: A Mechanistic Approach classifies organic chemistry according to mechanism rather than by functional group. The book elicits an understanding of the material, by means of problem solving, instead of purely requiring memorization. The text enables a deep understanding of underlying principles that can be applied to a wide range of problems and systems. It also teaches a way of thinking and analysis that will serve students well across many academic disciplines. Covering all the key aspects of organic chemistry, this text emphasizes the development of skills through a student-centered approach. In order to provide a contemporary feel to the subject, the author has included some of the more modern synthetic approaches. In addition, later chapters address the biological, environmental, industrial, and forensic aspects of organic chemistry. Pedagogical Features: Extensive review problems, which are the central means of integrating the material "Focus boxes" that highlight key points in the chapters An instructors’ website with full lecture notes in animated PowerPoint, a solutions manual in both Word and PowerPoint format, and additional problems for use in tests A student website with solutions to review problems, and additional challenging problems and solutions for the ambitious, in animated PowerPoint and text versions
The use of biological methods and processes for the remediation of contaminated soils and aquifers is the focus of this text, which emphasizes the characteristics of organic compounds and factors which make organics amenable to biological treatment.
When first they meet, Neil and Zach discovered a sexual and emotional chemistry that could not be denied. Then, as mental illness consumes one, each must grow, repair himself, and work to become stronger and more independent to ultimately conquer the life-crushing consequences wrought by mental illness and emotional dependency. Chemistry is the story of attraction between lovers, the brain chemistry that determines personality and mood, the medications needed for regaining mental health, and the relationships between people who care for one another. DeSimone debut is an enthralling novel of courage, liberation, and self-realization.
Concepts of Genetics is a one semester introductory genetics text that explains genetics concepts in a concise, engaging and up-to-date manner. Rob Brooker, author of market leading texts in Genetics and Intro Biology for majors, brings his clear and accessible writing style to this briefer genetics text. He employs the use of experimentation and stresses the fundamentals of the Scientific Method in presenting genetics concepts, then further engages the reader through the use of formative assessment to assist the student in understanding the core genetic principles. The introduction of Learning Outcomes throughout the chapter in the 2nd edition helps the student focus on the key concepts presented in the chapter. Concepts of Genetics, 2e also stresses developing problem-solving skills with the new feature “Genetic TIPS” that breaks a problem down into conceptual parts (Topic, Information, Problem-Solving Strategy) to help students work through the answer. The 2nd edition will be more focused on core concepts with the narrowing of book content by eliminating specialty chapters that many courses do not have time to cover in detail (the full chapters on Developmental Genetics and Evolutionary Genetics—these general topics are discussed elsewhere, but not in the amount of detail in the first edition). The author has added new information regarding epigenetics and material on personalized medicine. The integration of the genetics text and the power of digital world are now complete with McGraw-Hill's ConnectPlus including LearnSmart. Users who purchase Connect Plus receive access to SmartBook and to the full online ebook version of the textbook.
