The Mader/Windelspecht Story:
Biology is a comprehensive introductory biology textbook for non-majors or mixed-majors courses that covers biology in a traditional order from the structure and function of the cell to the organization of the biosphere. The book, which centers on the evolution and diversity of organisms, is appropriate for a one- or two-semester course.
The eleventh edition is the epitome of Mader's expertise: Its concise, precise writing uses an economy of words to present the material as succinctly and clearly as possible, thereby enabling students -- even non-majors -- to understand the concepts without necessarily asking the instructor to explain further. Sylvia Mader represents one of the icons of science education. Her dedication to her students, coupled with her clear, concise writing style has benefited the education of thousands of students over the past three decades. Dr. Michael’s Windelspecht: The integration of text and the digital world are now complete with the addition of Michael’s Windelspecht’s expertise in the development of digital learning assets. For over ten years, Michael served as the Introductory Biology Coordinator at Appalachian State University, in Boone NC where he directed a program that enrolls over 4,500 non-science majors annually. Michael has acted as the leading architect in the design of the Mader media content for McGraw-Hill's ConnectPlus and LearnSmart. These assets allow instructors to easily design interactive tutorial materials, enhance presentations in both the online and traditional environments, and assess the learning objectives and outcomes of your course.

Solomon/Martin/Martin/Berg, BIOLOGY is often described as the best majors text for LEARNING biology. Working like a built-in study guide, the superbly integrated, inquiry-based learning system guides you through every chapter. Key concepts appear clearly at the beginning of each chapter and learning objectives start each section. You can quickly check the key points at the end of each section before moving on to the next one. At the end of the chapter, a specially focused summary provides further reinforcement of the learning objectives and you are given the opportunity to test your understanding of the material. The tenth edition offers expanded integration of the text's five guiding themes of biology (the evolution of life, the transmission of biological information, the flow of energy through living systems, interactions among biological systems, and the inter-relationship of structure and function) and innovative online and multimedia resources.

As the amount of information in biology expands dramatically, it becomes increasingly important for textbooks to distill the vast amount of scientific knowledge into concise principles and enduring concepts.As with previous editions, Molecular Biology of the Cell, Sixth Edition accomplishes this goal with clear writing and beautiful illustrations. The Sixth Edition has been extensively revised and updated with the latest research in the field of cell biology, and it provides an exceptional framework for teaching and learning. The entire illustration program has been greatly enhanced.Protein structures better illustrate structure–function relationships, icons are simpler and more consistent within and between chapters, and micrographs have been refreshed and updated with newer, clearer, or better images. As a new feature, each chapter now contains intriguing openended questions highlighting “What We Don’t Know,” introducing students to challenging areas of future research. Updated end-of-chapter problems reflect new research discussed in the text, and these problems have been expanded to all chapters by adding questions on developmental biology, tissues and stem cells, pathogens, and the immune system.

Instructors consistently ask for a human biology textbook that helps students develop an understanding of the main themes of biology while placing the material in the context of the human body. Mader's Human Biology was developed to fill this void. To accomplish the goal of improving scientific literacy, while establishing a foundation of knowledge in human biology and physiology, Human Biology integrates a tested, traditional learning system with modern digital and pedagogical approaches designed to stimulate and engage today’s student. Multimedia Integration: Michael Windelspecht represents the new generation of digital authors. Through the integration of multimedia resources, such as videos, animations and MP3 files, and in the design of a new series of guided tutorials, Dr Windelspecht has worked to bring Dr. Mader’s texts to the new generation of digital learners. A veteran of the online, hybrid, and traditional teaching environments, Dr. Windelspecht is well versed in the challenges facing today’s students and educators. Dr. Windelspecht guided all aspects of the Connect content accompanying Human Biology. The authors of the text identified several goals that guided them through the revision of Human Biology, Thirteenth Edition: build upon the strengths of the previous editions of the text, enhance the learning process by integrating content that appeals to today’s students, deploy new pedagogical elements, including multimedia assets, to increase student interaction with the text, develop a new series of digital assets designed to engage the modern student and provide assessment of learning outcomes.



Undergraduate Immunology: A textbook for tablets and other mobile devices

Undergraduate Immunology: A textbook for tablets and other mobile devices


Technical Details | Add To Wishlist | All Customer Reviews

This exciting new electronic textbook aims to introduce and explain each of the major aspects of human immunology that are likely to be covered during undergraduate courses in immunology. It should be of most benefit to students of biology, medicine, microbiology and of course, immunology. With 18 chapters and 98 full colour figures, the different topics are introduced in an order that can be followed from the most basic concepts of immunology in the early chapters, through to quite advanced topics later in the book. Each chapter begins with a summary of the information leading up to the chapter, and ends with a list of revision points summarising each key new item that has been introduced. For those wishing to explore particular topics in more depth, suggestions for further reading are offered at the end of each chapter, with links to external websites and articles that are free to access for readers with an internet connection.
Also included in the book is a self-assessment section featuring >160 self-test questions and answers to aid revision and also to help gauge understanding of the material presented in each chapter.
The book has been optimised for reading on tablets and other mobile devices, such as mobile telephones, kindles and other e-readers. In particular, the text and images are optimised to minimise file sizes in order to enable quick download and to be easily accommodated on smaller devices. All images are sized to fit the aspect ratio most commonly used by tablets, phones and e-readers, and to remain legible even when viewed using smaller screens. The book is also enabled for electronic text-to-speech conversion, so if your device offers this function, it will be possible to listen to the book as an aid to revision.
