Summary

Explorations in Basic Biologyis a self-contained laboratory manual designed for one- or two-semester introductory biology courses for non-biology and mixed biology majors. The exercises are appropriate for three-hour laboratory sessions, but are also adaptable to a two-hour laboratory format. #xA0; Ideal for students with little hands-on science laboratory experience, this student-friendly text provides clear background information and directions for conducting laboratory activities. Students not only learn basic biological information but also gain experience practicing laboratory techniques. #xA0; The Twelfth Edition has been updated with new content, including several new or modified figures and procedures that have been clarified wherever necessary to facilitate student learning, a new Appendix, and guidelines for writing a scientific paper. Several exercises also feature significant improvements.

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.
