The best-selling Botany: An Introduction to Plant Biology by Jim Mauseth continues to set the standard for the fundamentals of plant science in an updated sixth edition. No botany text better connects structure to function and does so with higher quality art and imagery. Combining strong scientific grounding with an approachable writing style, Botany teaches and engages.
The highly anticipated Third Edition of Understanding Viruses by Teri Shors of University of Wisconsin - Oshkosh will publish July 29th. Understanding Viruses continues to set the standard for the fundamentals of virology. This classic textbook combines molecular, clinical, and historical aspects of human viral diseases in a new stunning interior design featuring high quality art that will engage readers. Preparing students for their careers, the Third Edition greatly expands on molecular virology and virus families.
We recently conducted a review of our best-selling and highly regarded, GENES XI textbook. We sought feedback from instructors who are currently or have very recently used the text in their molecular biology course and instructors who have not adopted the current Eleventh Edition.
Specifically, instructors had this to say about the text’s organization and comprehensive coverage of content:
“For the level of class I teach [the course is open to both upper-level undergraduate students and graduate students], the topic depth is excellent. In some cases, there is more depth than I will need/use, but topics are presented in a way that this extra depth does not preclude the student/reader from gaining the knowledge and level of depth the instructor is targeting.”
– Dr. Matthew Stern, Winthrop University
Today marks the 156th anniversary since the publication of Charles Darwin's On The Origin of Species. Every year scientists celebrate Evolution Day to commemorate Darwin's contributions to science and to focus on and educate the public about evolutionary biology.
Today, Evolution is a core undergraduate course for any young biologist working through their academic career. We like to celebrate our prolific science forefathers by highlighting our quality textbooks written by leading scientists and educators.
What do we know about Ebola? Authored by two professionals in the medical and science fields, the recently published Ebola: An Emerging Infectious Disease Case Study analyzes the recent outbreak of the virus from a variety of angles and provides context for our understanding of emerging infectious diseases, how they are treated, and how agencies and governments respond to them.
Employment of biological technicians is projected to grow 10% from 2012 to 2022 (Source: Bureau of Labor Statistics, U.S. Department of Labor, Occupational Outlook Handbook, 2014-15 Edition). The recently published Molecular Biotechnology by Carolyn Dehlinger, emphasizes careers in molecular biotechnology, profiles of major projects and researchers, and expansive discussions of bioethical concerns and current research, making it the ideal starting point for students pursuing a career as a biological technician.

Last fall, we conducted a focus group with students at Glendale Community College on Navigate 2 Advantage Access for Fundamentals of Microbiology, Tenth Edition, based on the classic undergraduate microbiology text by Jeffrey C. Pommerville. During the focus group, students received a product demonstration of Navigate 2 Advantage Access, including a comprehensive and interactive eBook, assessments, and practice activities. After the demonstration, students completed a survey on their initial reactions, carried out a set of tasks, and provided their feedback on the Navigate 2 user experience as a whole from the student perspective.
