What Instructors are Saying...
“[The Microbial Challenge] is perfect for community/public health majors. I like how the author has linked in comparisons that the students can relate to, and how everyday items/activities have been used to build greater understanding of materials…The key strength of the book, for my class, is that a non-biology major can learn epidemiology concepts successfully. In today’s world of prevention this book is well structured and written.
Congratulations to Jones & Bartlett Learning Author and Higgins Professor of Biology at Harvard University, Dr. Daniel L. Hartl for the esteemed honor of being awarded the Genetics Society of America (GSA) 2019 Thomas Hunt Morgan Medal!
We recently sat down with Dr. Hartl at his Harvard University office to discuss his latest textbook, Essential Genetics and Genomics, Seventh Edition. At the end of a long hallway with working research laboratories on either side is Dan's comfortable corner office. Surrounded by DNA models and floor-to-ceiling shelves packed with genetics textbooks and other biological science references, he explained to us why he wrote the textbook.
It’s critical for students to learn how to collect and analyze social science data to understand the nature of crime and theories of why crime occurs. Statistics in Criminology and Criminal Justice: Analysis and Interpretation does just that. It teaches how to collect, organize, record, analyze, interpret, and apply statistical information to prepare students for their careers or graduate study.
