Cecie Starr is the most successful author in non-majors biology because of her clear and engaging writing, trend-setting art, and unparalleled media. BIOLOGY TODAY AND TOMORROW, her most concise text, provides a precise, issues-oriented approach and solves some of the toughest course challenges: engaging students, linking concepts from chapter to chapter, easily monitoring students' progress and simplifying lecture prep. Show students how biology matters: opening each chapter with engaging essays on hot issues and related online voting, the text highlights the connections between biology and real-life. Online exercises promote critical thinking about issues students will face as consumers, parents and citizens. Link concepts from chapter to chapter: since students have a difficult time linking concepts, the authors created a new linking tool. A list at the start of each chapter reminds students of related topics that were explained earlier. Within chapters, a key icon identifies cross-references to relevant sections in earlier chapters. As students work through the text, they see how topics build upon one another. Monitor students' progress with ease: BiologyNowTM offers diagnostic quizzes with automatically graded results that flow directly into your instructor grade book (iLrn, WebCT or BlackBoard). And, to assess students' progress instantly with in-class quizzes and polls, you can use JoinIn on TurningPoint content and software. Enjoy easier lecture prep: The new PowerLecture tool integrates all electronic chapter assets - art, photos, animations, videos, links to InfoTrac articles, web links, bulleted text slides, and everything else you need into each chapter's lecture slides. This buffet of media resources-arranged by chapter section-is at your fingertips.

Cecie Starr is the most successful author in non-majors biology because of her clear and engaging writing, trend-setting art, and unparalleled student and instructor media. Now in her brief NEW text, Starr creates in fewer than 600 pages a friendly, issues-oriented book with enormous instructional power. Integrating visuals from the book and accompanying media, Starr supports student mastery throughout and encourages students to make judgments about biology-related issues just as they will as citizens, voters, parents, employees, and consumers. The pedagogical focal points of each chapter are "Read Me First!" diagrams that introduce concepts before students read the longer text discussions. These visual previews, featuring annotated art presented in clearly numbered steps, make the subsequent text discussions more accessible. To solidify understanding, a narrated animation of each diagram appears on the free Student CD-ROM. "The Big Picture" on every chapter-opening page is a visual overview of the chapter's key concepts and is enhanced by a fully narrated, "mini-lecture" movie on the CD-ROM. The free Student CD-ROM provides access to BiologyNow, a powerful diagnostic learning tool that helps students assess their unique study needs through pretests and personalized learning plans. An "Impacts and Issues" opens each chapter focusing students on a key biology-related societal issue. Revisited throughout the chapter, this unfolding case study illustrates the chapter's biological concepts. Each chapter's "How Would You Vote?" feature asks students to consider biology-related news topics, gather and evaluate pro/con information, apply knowledge, then cast a vote on the Web. Students can see how peers in their state and across the nation voted. For additional facts and perspectives on each side of the issue, instructors can assign readings from the online Opposing Viewpoints Resource Center.

Lamarck and Evolutionary Biology : Now with "Lamarck in 1995"

Author: Richard Wellington Burkhardt

Publisher: Harvard University Press

ISBN: 9780674833180

Category: Biography & Autobiography

Page: 285

Jean-Baptiste Lamarck was a biological Janus, at once a highly competent taxonomist in a traditional mold and a bold, almost visionary, philosopher of nature who aspired to contrive an all-embracing "physics of the earth" by sheer force of intellect. Lamarck is generally remembered only for his ideas about the inheritance of acquired characters, ideas he did not originate or take special credit for, ideas that were only one part of his broad theory of evolution. In this, the first modern book-length study of Lamarck, Richard Burkhardt examines the origin and development of Lamarck's theory of organic evolution, the major theory prior to Darwin.

An Issues Approach

Author: Eli C. Minkoff,Pamela J. Baker

Publisher: Garland Science

ISBN: 9780815327608

Category: Medical

Page: 718

View: 2016

Biology as a subject not only plays a major role within the scientific world but has broader implications that cross many boundaries. This work takes a modern and innovative approach to teaching introductory biology; it presents fundamental biological concepts within the context of current social issues. How do scientists affect our society at large? How are ethics and morals applied to the scientific world? Why are we racing to complete the human genome project, and who are we racing against? How do economic disparities between people and nations influence habitat destruction? Can plant science feed the world? Are the causes of cancer more genetic or environmental? The book seeks to help students think critically about these questions and to explore and assess the role that science plays in their world.

Biology is where many of science's most exciting and relevant advances are taking place. Yet, many students leave school without having learned basic biology principles, and few are excited enough to continue in the sciences. Why is biology education failing? How can reform be accomplished? This book presents information and expert views from curriculum developers, teachers, and others, offering suggestions about major issues in biology education: what should we teach in biology and how should it be taught? How can we measure results? How should teachers be educated and certified? What obstacles are blocking reform?

"As molecular biologists peer ever more deeply into life's mysteries, there are those who fear that such 'reductionism' conceals more than it reveals, and there are those who complain that the new techniques threaten the physical safety of us all. As students of evolution apply their understanding to our own species, some people think that this is merely an excuse for racist and sexist propaganda, and others worry that the whole exercise blatantly violates the religious beliefs many hold dear. These controversies are the joint concerns of biologists and philosophers--of those whose task it is to study the theoretical and moral foundations of knowledge"--From publisher description.

Page: 464

View: 4033

Advances in Radiation Biology, Volume 11, provides an overview of the state of knowledge in the field of radiation biology. The book contains eight chapters and begins with a study on ADP-ribose in DNA repair. This is followed by separate chapters on the inhibition of DNA repair; the photochemistry and photobiology of furocoumarins and their applications in biology and medicine; radiation risk from combined exposures to ionizing radiations and chemicals; and in vitro studies of drug-radiation interactions. Subsequent chapters deal with free-radical processes in radiation and chemical carcinogenesis; heavy-ion tissue radiobiology; and radon concentrations in the environment and their impact on health.
