The laboratory manual strives to present the material in a unique way by introducing basic principles then applying them in context within ecosystems instead of strictly by concept or phyla.
Author: Wendi K. Wolfram
A Biology Laboratory Manual designed to provide a one-semester preview for introductory-level university courses in the areas of: Microscopy; Symmetry; Classification; Scientific Method; Introduction to Plant and Animal Phyla; Basic Animal Form and Function; Animal Behavior; and Ecological Correlations Between Species. A general understanding and appreciation of these venues provides a strong foundation for more advanced biology courses. The laboratory manual strives to present the material in a unique way by introducing basic principles then applying them in context within ecosystems instead of strictly by concept or phyla. In doing so, students are able to visualize a holistic approach to diversification, form and function, and behavior, and are better equipped to associate conceptual exercises with the world in which they live.

Publisher: World Scientific Publishing Company
This book is intended to be an accessible introduction to the cell biology of mammalian cells for junior or senior undergraduate students who have already had an introduction to biological sciences. This engaging and stimulating text focuses on current controversies in cell biology. To solve these puzzles, the reader will learn how to answer a number of fundamental yet hard-hitting questions in the field. He or she is thus able to approach the subject with the right scientific attitude and build a firm foundation of understanding. Basic features of mammalian cells — secretion, division, motility, cell-cell interactions — are described using up-to-date references to the most current scientific literature. The text is well illustrated with clearly understandable diagrams and numerous micrographs of cells. This text will enable non-specialists to acquire a better understanding of current issues in mammalian cell biology.

With many examples throughout and clear explanations of key concepts, this book is the first to offer a broad treatment of genomics-inspired network biology with sufficient mathematical and biological rigor.
Author: Alpan Raval
Publisher: CRC Press
The new research area of genomics-inspired network biology lacks an introductory book that enables both physical/computational scientists and biologists to obtain a general yet sufficiently rigorous perspective of current thinking. Filling this gap, Introduction to Biological Networks provides a thorough introduction to genomics-inspired network biology for physical scientists and biologists involved in interdisciplinary research. The book focuses on the concept of molecular and genetic interaction networks as a paradigm for interpreting the complexity of molecular biology at a genomic scale. The authors describe the experimental methods used to discover and test networks of interaction among biological molecules. They also present computational methods for predicting the interaction networks, discuss general mechanisms of network formation and evolution, and explore the application of network approaches to important problems in biology and medicine. With many examples throughout and clear explanations of key concepts, this book is the first to offer a broad treatment of genomics-inspired network biology with sufficient mathematical and biological rigor. It gives readers a conceptual understanding of this burgeoning scientific field.

Written for a general college audience, this book offers an introduction to the principles and significance of Darwinian evolution. It differs from most other textbooks on evolution in three fundamental ways: first, it is intended for students taking evolution early in their studies; second, it examines the intellectual significance of Darwinian evolution; and third, the text departs from the standard treatment of evolution in other textbooks, wherein the arguments are reductionist, molecular, and overwhelmingly genetic in emphasis. Ken Kardong, also author of Vertebrates; Comparative Anatomy, Function, Evolution, is known for his accessible writing style. His almost conversational approach to this topic puts the reader at ease while learning evolutionary concepts. The result is an inviting book that will be read.
INTRODUCTION The subject matter within the purview of a biologist differs from
that in the domain of the physicist chiefly on the basis of the degree of complexity

An Introduction to Biological Rhythms provides an introduction to the subject of biological rhythms. The opening chapters present an overview of biological rhythms, their properties, and clock control, followed by a survey of rhythms in plants and animals. The subsequent chapters cover tidal rhythms and human rhythms; sun-compass, star-compass, and moon compass orientation of animals; the clock control of plant and animal photoperiodism; evidence for external timing of biological clocks; and models and mechanisms for endogenous timekeeping. The book also includes biographical sketches of Dr. Frank A. Brown, Jr., Morrison Professor of Biology at Northwestern University; and Dr. Leland N. Edmunds, Jr., Professor and Head of the Division of Biological Sciences at the Stony Brook campus of the State University of New York. This book is meant for the inquiring student seeking an introduction to the subject and for busy biologists in other fields who want to get a ""feel"" for the subject. It can also serve as a basic textbook for the existing biorhythms courses and act as a seed for the inauguration of new courses.

Author: S. I. Rubinow
Publisher: Courier Corporation
This volume is designed to cultivate in graduate biology students an awareness of and familiarity with applications of mathematical techniques and methods related to biology. This text explores five areas of mathematical biology, presented in a unified fashion; the first three subjects, cell growth, enzymatic reactions, and physiological tracers, are biological; the final two, biological fluid dynamics and diffusion, are biophysical. Introduced in an order of progressive mathematical complexity, the topics essentially follow a course in elementary differential equations, although linear algebra and graph theory are also touched upon. Free of mathematical jargon, the text requires only a knowledge of elementary calculus. A set of problems appears at the end of each chapter, with solutions at the end of the book. Unabridged republication of the edition published by John Wiley & Sons, New York, 1975. Preface. Solutions. References. Appendixes. Author Index. Subject Index.
