Concepts of Biology w/ Lab Manual https://www.mheducation.com/cover-images/Jpeg_400-high/0077967186.jpeg 14 9780077967185 Enger/Ross/Bailey: Concepts in Biology is a relatively brief introductory general biology text written for students with no previous science background. The authors strive to use the most accessible vocabulary and writing style possible while still maintaining scientific accuracy. The text covers all the main areas of study in biology from cells through ecosystems. Evolution and ecology coverage are combined in Part Four to emphasize the relationship between these two main subject areas. The new, 13th edition is the latest and most exciting revision of a respected introductory biology text written by authors who know how to reach students through engaging writing, interesting issues and applications, and accessible level. Instructors will appreciate the book’s scientific accuracy, complete coverage and extensive supplement package. The laboratory exercise in this manual are coordinated with Concepts of Biology, a general biology text that covers the entire field of biology. The text emphasizes how we can apply biological knowledge to our own lives and to our relationships with other organisms.

About the Author

Eldon Enger

Eldon D. Enger received a B.A. and an M.S. from the University of Michigan. He is professor emeritus of biology at Delta College, where he taught biology, zoology, and environmental science and was active in curriculum and course development. Professor Enger is an advocate for variety in teaching methodology and feels that if students are provided with varied experiences, they are more likely to learn. Professor Enger's classes include writing assignments, student presentation of lecture material, debates by students on controversial issues, field experiences, individual student projects, and discussions of local examples and relevant current events. Professor Enger was a Fulbright Exchange Teacher to Australia and Scotland, received the Bergstein Award for Teaching Excellence and the Scholarly Achievement Award from Delta College, and participated as a volunteer in Earthwatch Research Programs.
