Learn more about reviews. As well, I don't see coverage of integumentary system or development. Lymphatic system is with immune system, which is fine but perhaps change title for Ch 20 to "Immune System and Lymphatic system is with immune system, which is fine but perhaps change title for Ch 20 to "Immune System and Lymphatic System. Clarity The text is well-written, as or more understandable than the many other texts I've used. Consistency rating: 4 I suggest incorporating a section on human evolution, perhaps with the introductory chapter. Also development with the Reproductive System.
The structure and function of tissues, organs and organ systems, i. The volume is essentially divided into four major sections. The penultimate section outlines the principles of inheritance, and includes chapters on cell reproduction, observable patterns of inheritance, chromosome variations and medical genetics, DNA structure and function, cancer, and recombinant DNA and genetic engineering.
Chapters in this section cover the principles of evolution, human evolution, ecosystems, and the impacts of human populations.
In every chapter each concept is presented as a two-page concept spread with summary sentences containing the information needed to understand a concept. Physiological systems summaries describe the major body systems, all major structures and the function of each structure.
Focus on health boxes discuss health concerns such as the role of antioxidants, fad diets and eating disorders, use of anabolic steroids, and exercise physiology. In summary, this is an excellent volume that will be of invaluable use to any individuals wishing to gain a comprehensive understanding of the core concepts of human biology.
The abundance of carbohydrates and glycoconjugates in nature and the understanding of some of their biological roles has prompted research into utilizing simple monosaccharides as starting materials for a range of high value compounds, offering a renewable alternative to current starting materials.
Laboratory practice in handling microorganisms, including identification and culture techniques.
BIOS The biology of vertebrates, stressing structure and function. Laboratory dissection of representative vertebrates emphasizes comparative anatomy.
BIOS An introduction to the human body through dissection and demonstration of a selected portion of a human cadaver. Notes: Special Approval Required. May be taken for a total of 2 credits. BIOS Genetics Integrates principles of Mendelian and molecular genetics toward understanding structure and function of the gene. Emphasizes quantitative analysis of genetic data and explores current issues of genetic engineering from technical and ethical viewpoints.
An 8—10 page research paper and presentation on one of these isolations is also required.
BIOS Taxonomy, life history, physiology, molecular basis, ecology, and morphology of animal parasites with emphasis on those affecting humans. BIOS General Biochemistry I Structures and properties of biomolecular components of cells, including proteins, carbohydrates, lipids, nucleotides, nucleic acids, vitamins and coenzymes, kinetics and mechanism and regulation of enzyme action in biological systems.
BIOS Principles of metabolic processes; mathematical treatment of bioenergetics emphasizing major concepts and problem solving. The isolation, characterization and analysis of biomolecules including the use of biochemical instrumentation and methodology for work in protein structure, enzymology, metabolism and genetics. BIOS Developmental Biology Analyzes the molecular, genetic and cellular mechanisms that control fertilization, the development of body form, cell specialization and differentiation as well as metamorphosis, maturation and aging.
Laboratory emphasizes gametogenesis, fertilization, comparative embryology of vertebrates and invertebrates and directed experimental manipulation of embryos.
BIOS A study of the structures and functions of the immune system, humoral and cell mediated immunity, and analysis of medically significant disorders of the immune system. Emphasis on topics such as: molecular interactions between the host and virus, the genetics and chemical nature of viruses and the replication strategies of viruses. How viruses caused disease, how they are used in biotechnology and their overall impact on society will also be discussed.
Bacteriophage and tissues culture techniques will be stressed in laboratory. BIOS Print ISBN: About this book This comprehensive introduction to the field of human biology covers all the major areas of the field: Written by four expert authors working in close collaboration, this second edition has been thoroughly updated to provide undergraduate and graduate students with two new chapters: Free Access.
