This textbook is full of interesting experiments in Microbiology with vibrant colors and detail. Book was in the condition that was described so no surprises there. I also received it pretty quickly (didn't realize it until I got it!). I definitely recommend this seller.

Summary

Key Benefit: Containing 57 thoroughly class-tested exercises, this manual provides basic microbiology techniques with applications for undergraduate readers in diverse areas, including the biological sciences, the allied health sciences, agriculture, environmental science, nutrition, pharmacy, and various pre-professional programs. The Ninth Edition features a new, four-color design and a dramatically new art program. Many of the illustrations have been re-rendered in a modern, realistic, three-dimensional style, and detailed, colorful photomicrographs that were once grouped together in a color insert are now integrated throughout the exercises. Experiments have been refined throughout, and a new exercise on parasitic helminths readers with valuable practice in microscopic examination and observation.

Author Biography

Ted R. Johnson is a professor of biology at St. Olaf College, a liberal arts college in Northfield, Minnesota, where he teaches courses in microbiology and immunology. He has taught at St. Olaf for 31 years and previously taught at Mankato State University. He received his master’s degree and his Ph.D in microbiology from the University of Illinois in Chicago, Illinois. While at St. Olaf College, he has developed and directed several abroad semester and interim programs. His research focuses on the immune response to virally induced cancer in various animal models.

 

Christine L. Case is a registered microbiologist and a professor of microbiology at Skyline College in San Bruno, California, where she has taught for the past 38 years. She received her Ed. D. in curriculum and instruction from Nova Southeastern University and her M.A. in microbiology from San Francisco State University. She was Director for the Society for Industrial Microbiology (SIM). She received the ASM and California Hayward outstanding educator awards and SACNAS Mentor award. In addition to teaching, Chris contributes regularly to professional literature, develops innovative educational methodologies, and maintains a personal and professional commitment to conservation and the importance of science in society.
