By Peter J. Russell, Paul E. Hertz, Beverly McMillan

The right way to imagine and have interaction like a scientist! BIOLOGY: THE DYNAMIC technological know-how, 3rd version, permits you to strengthen a deep realizing of the middle recommendations in Biology and builds a powerful starting place for destiny classes. The authors clarify complicated rules in actual fact and describe how biologists acquire and interpret facts to check hypotheses concerning the dwelling global. Russell, Hertz, and McMillan will spark your interest approximately dwelling structures rather than burying it below a mountain of disconnected proof. you'll research what scientists learn about the dwelling international, how they realize it, and what they nonetheless have to study. The accompanying Aplia for Biology enhances the booklet through allowing you to head past rote memorization and achieve a real figuring out of key options. on hand with InfoTrac scholar Collections

Utilizing a statistical point of view, this paintings introduces a few functional examples from various sorts of microscopy, scientific imaging platforms, distant sensing and make contact with prints to demonstate the various variety of photograph research purposes. Explains the character of electronic photos and terminology use.

What I Require From Life: Writings on Science and Life From J.B.S. Haldane

J. B. S. Haldane (1892-64) was once one of many nice scientists--and nice technology writers--of the 20 th century. A polymath who used to be a primary determine within the improvement of recent evolutionary biology, he used to be additionally a hugely expert essayist and a rare character--brilliant, witty, idealistic, humorous, and pugnacious.

Example text

By contrast, animals are consumers: directly or indirectly, they feed on the complex molecules manufactured by plants. For example, zebras tap directly into the molecules of plants when they eat grass, and lions tap into it indirectly when they eat zebras. Certain bacteria and fungi are decomposers: they feed on the remains of dead organisms, breaking down complex biological molecules into simpler raw materials, which may then be recycled by the producers. As you will see in Chapter 54, much of the energy that photosynthetic organisms trap from sunlight flows within and between populations, communities, and ecosystems.

The information in RNA guides the production of proteins. A computer-generated model of DNA illustrates that it is made up of two strands twisted into a double helix. 4 The pathway of information flow in living organisms. Information stored in DNA is copied into RNA, which then directs the construction of protein molecules. The protein shown here is lysozyme. © Cengage Learning 2014 © Cengage Learning 2014 CHAPTER 1 I N T R O D U C T I O N T O B I O LO G I C A L C O N CEPTS AND R ESEAR CH Copyright 2012 Cengage Learning.
