Biological Explorations: A Human Approach
This extensively illustrated laboratory manual provides 33 stimulating laboratory exercises in human biology. The level of rigor, easy-to-read text, clear procedures, and abundant illustrations make the manual especially suited for readers who have had little, if any, prior science laboratory experience. The self-contained, self-directing exercises cover all major areas of introductory biology--from basic chemistry and cell structure to a little biotechnology--all emphasizing the human organism. Includes a very contemporary exercise on DNA Fingerprinting. The exercises require only standard equipment and materials, and each contain exercise objectives, background information, clearly described laboratory procedures, and a Laboratory Report for record observations, data, and conclusions. For anyone interested in laboratory work in introductory biology.
