For a biology student attempting to memorize the stages of cell division or understand basic genetics, straight memorization from textbooks or lecture notes can be a frustrating and laborious exercise.
Biology Coloring Workbook is a breakthrough approach to studying the science of life. Learning interactively through coloring fixes biological concepts in the mind and promotes quick recall on exams. Rather than learning cell structure by forcing yourself to memorize the name and function of each organelle, you can benefit from reviewing your own colorful portrait of the cell.
Inside are nearly 150 plates of clear and precise computer-generated artwork that are accompanied by a thorough explanation of each topic. Complex biology subjects are explained through clear and simple drawings. Coloring suggestions are providede to help you complete each lesson, and each plate is labeled for easy identification and reference. Biology Coloring Workbook follows the standard organization of introductory textbooks, making it the ideal study companion.
The plates are organized into the following sections:
Introduction to Biology
Biology of the Cell
Principles of Genetics
DNA and Gene Expression
Principles of Evolution
The Origin of Life and Simple Life Forms
Biology of Plants
Biology of Animals
Reproduction and Development in Humans
Principles of Ecology
