Overview

With its distinctive investigative approach to learning, this best-selling laboratory manual encourages you to participate in the process of science and develop creative and critical reasoning skills. You 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. Select tables from the lab manual are provided in Excel® format in MasteringBiology® at www.masteringbiology.com, allowing you to record data directly on their computer, process data using statistical tests, create graphs, and be prepared to communicate your results in class discussions or reports.
