For non-majors/mixed biology courses. Build a flexible non-majors biology course with science literacy at its core. Eric Simon's Biology: The Core combines a succinct, beautifully illustrated 12-chapter textbook with engaging MasteringBiology assignment options and extensive instructor support materials. The Core delivers a uniquely flexible teaching and learning package that supports Active Learning or "Flipped Classroom" teaching techniques, and an emphasis on current issues that relate to basic biological concepts. The modular organization of the text makes it easy for instructors to teach concepts in their preferred order, and powerful online assignment options reinforce those concepts by clarifying the "big picture" and preparing your students with the biological literacy skills required to make informed decisions outside the classroom. The Second Edition text and MasteringBiology assignment options furtherrevolutionize teaching in and out of the classroom with a greater emphasis on the nature of science and dozens of new opportunities for students to practice basic science literacy skills. The Core's concise modules continue to focus students' attention on the most important concepts, combining dynamic figures and illustrations with supporting narrative as the primary source of instruction to create a more engaging and accessible learning experience for students. The new edition has been revised to strengthen the ways the text, MasteringBiology, and the instructor support materials work together in meeting the needs of both instructors and students-before, during, and after class. Also available with MasteringBiology (tm) MasteringBiology is an online homework, tutorial, and assessment product proven to improve results by helping students quickly master concepts. Students benefit from opportunities to practice basic science literacy skills, using interactive resources that create engaging learning experiences. Effective activities in MasteringBiology help students further visualize and understand complex biological processes. Comprehensive instructor tools include MasteringBiology assignment options.

This comprehensive text provides the reader with both a detailed reference and a unified course on wastewater treatment. Aimed at scientists and engineers, it deals with the environmental and biological aspects of wastewater treatment and sludge disposal. The book starts by examining the nature of wastewaters and how they are oxidized in the natural environment. An introductory chapter deals with wastewater treatment systems and examines how natural principles have been harnessed by man to treat his own waste in specialist reactors. The role of organisms is considered by looking at kinetics, metabolism and the different types of micro-organisms involved. All the major biological process groups are examined in detail, in highly referenced chapters; they include fixed film reactors, activated sludge, stabilization ponds, anaerobic systems and vegetative processes. Sludge treatment and disposal is examined with particular reference to the environmental problems associated with the various disposal routes. A comprehensive chapter on public health looks at the important waterborne organisms associated with disease, as well as removal processes within treatment systems. Biotechnology has had an enormous impact on wastewater treatment at every level, and this is explored in terms of resource reuse, biological conversion processes and environmental protection. Finally, there is a short concluding chapter that looks at the sustainability of waste water treatment. The text is fully illustrated and supported by over 3000 references.

Reviews:“Anyone interested in the biology of wastewater treatment will find this book useful.”Biotechnology Advances “… is both well written and informative and it should appeal to anyone with an interest in wastewater treatment. It covers the ground in sufficient depth to stay useful throughout one's entire career, serving as an essential reference, allowing one to dive in and out at will as one's needs dictate … manages to fulfil what I believe to be its aim of bridging the gap between wastewater engineering and its underlying biology.”Journal of the Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management

Since the first edition of Light Microscopy in Biology: A Practical approach was published, techniques in modern light microscopy have improved considerably. This fully updated edition includes revised topics from the first edition as well as coverage of techniques and technologies that have been developed since it was published. As before, the book starts with an explanation of the basic techniques, and goes on to describe current methods in: chromosome microscopy, immunohistochemistry, fluorescence microscopy, image building and video microscopy. Totally new topics covered include: confocal microscopy, calcium and pH imaging, microinjection techniques and nanovid microscopy. There are also whole chapters now devoted to reflection contrast microscopy and histomorphometry. This new edition will be of great interest to postgraduate and postdoctoral researchers in biomedicine and cell biology - both those experienced with light microscopic techniques and newcomers to the field.

Many investigations into the structure and function of cells and tissues require the isolation of a particular membrane or subcellular component (organelle). This book covers all the necessary aspects, from breaking up the cells (homogenization), via a variety of separation techniques (the isolation and fractionation chapters), to characterization of the separated organelles.
