Summary

Key Message:Compatible with any textbook, this manual provides 33 stimulating laboratory exercises for either human biology or introductory biology courses for non-majors in which the human organism is emphasized. The level of rigor, user-friendly language, and abundant illustrations make this manual ideal for students who have had little, if any, prior science laboratory experience. Key Topics:Orientation, The Microscope, The Cell, Chemistry of Cells, Enzymes, Diffusion and Osmosis, Photosynthesis, Cellular Respiration, Cell Division, Heredity, Molecular and Chromosomal Genetics, DNA Fingerprinting, Organization of the Human Body, Dissection of the Fetal Pig, Circulation of Blood, Blood, Gas Exchange, Digestion, Neural Control, Sensory Perception, Support and Movement, Excretion, Reproduction, Fertilization and Development, Prokaryotes, Protists, and Fungi, Plants, Structure of Flowering Plants, Simple Animals, Mollusks, Annelids, and Arthropods, Echinoderms and Chordates, Human Evolution, Ecological Relationships, Population Growth, Appendix A: Common Prefixes, Suffixes, and Root Words, Appendix B: Common Metric Units and Temperature, Appendix C: Oil Immersion Techniques, Appendix D: Classification of Organisms Market:Intended for those interested in learning the basics of human biology

Author Biography

After earning his Ph.D. in Biology at the University of Southern California, Stanley Gunstream became the Co-Principal Investigator for USC’s Mosquito Research Project. Stan is now retired after 34 years with Pasadena City College, where he began as an Associate Professor of Life Sciences and progressed to the Chair of Life Sciences/Allied Health, Administrative Dean for Instruction, and Vice President for Instruction. Stan has also served part-time as a lecturer in Ecology and Entomology at Pasadena College and CSU-Los Angeles.

 

He is a member of the Human Anatomy and Physiology Society (HAPS) as well as the National Association of Biology Teachers (NABT). Stan is the author and co-author of seven anatomy & physiology and biology laboratory manuals, and one anatomy & physiology textbook.
