Summary

Designed for use in the laboratory component of introductory general biology courses, this lab manual contains 41 exercises that will allow students to work independently from the professor to enhance learning. Each exercise in this lab manual: States learning objectives. Describes necessary background information to prepare students for the activities that will follow. Lists the required material for each activity in the exercise. Provides a laboratory report for each exercise so students can record observations, data, and conclusions. The six diversity exercises include a minipracticum section on each laboratory report so students are challenged to identify organisms based on the recognition of characteristics. Book jacket.
