Description

With its distinctive investigative approach to learning, this best-selling laboratory manual encourages students to participate in the process of science and develop creative and critical reasoning skills. Students are invited to pose hypotheses, make predictions, conduct open-ended experiments, collect data, and apply the results to new problems. The Seventh Edition emphasizes connections to recurring themes in biology, including structure and function, unity and diversity, and the overarching theme of evolution. 

 

CourseSmart textbooks do not include any media or print supplements that come packaged with the bound book.
