Compatible with any textbook, this manual provides 33 stimulating laboratory exercises for either human biology or introductory biology courses for non-majors in which the human organism is emphasized. The level of rigor, user-friendly language, and abundant illustrations make this manual ideal for students who have had little, if any, prior science laboratory experience. KEY TOPICS: Orientation, The Microscope, The Cell, Chemistry of Cells, Enzymes, Diffusion and Osmosis, Photosynthesis, Cellular Respiration, Cell Division, Heredity, Molecular and Chromosomal Genetics, DNA Fingerprinting, Organization of the Human Body, Dissection of the Fetal Pig, Circulation of Blood, Blood, Gas Exchange, Digestion, Neural Control, Sensory Perception, Support and Movement, Excretion, Reproduction, Fertilization and Development, Prokaryotes, Protists, and Fungi, Plants, Structure of Flowering Plants, Simple Animals, Mollusks, Annelids, and Arthropods, Echinoderms and Chordates, Human Evolution, Ecological Relationships, Population Growth, Appendix A: Common Prefixes, Suffixes, and Root Words, Appendix B: Common Metric Units and Temperature, Appendix C: Oil Immersion Techniques, Appendix D: Classification of Organisms. MARKET: Intended for those interested in learning the basics of human biology
