The first and second editions of Biology, written by Dr. Rob Brooker, Dr. Eric Widmaier, Dr. Linda Graham, and Dr. Peter Stiling, has reached thousands of students and provided them with an outstanding view of the biological world. Now, the third edition has gotten even better! The author team is dedicated to producing the most engaging and current text that is available for undergraduate students who are majoring in biology. The authors want students to be inspired by the field of biology and become critical thinkers. They understand the goal of a professor is to prepare students for future course work, lab experiences, and careers in the sciences. Building on the successes of the first and second editions, the third edition reflects a focus on core competencies and provides a more learner-centered approach. The strength of an engaging and current text is improved with the addition of new pedagogical features that direct the students’ learning goals and provide opportunities for assessment, to determine if students understand the concepts.
A squid with an eye the size of a basketball, a mammal that has venomous spurs; these are the bizarre and unexpected features of the animal world that have us glued to animal TV shows and movies and lining up to visit zoos each year. These are the types of awe-inspiring examples in Integrative Animal Biology that will bring students into a world of wonder. Taking an integrated, systems-based approach to animal biology (invertebrate/vertebrate) this book contains the unusual and surprising examples of biological structures and processes within an evolutionary context that is designed to capture student attention. You can embark on an unparalleled adventure and exploration into the animal world with Integrative Animal Biology.

Cytogenetic Abnormalities: Chromosomal, FISH, and Microarray-Based Clinical Reporting and Interpretation of Result
This guide discusses chromosomal abnormalities and how best to report and communicate lab findings in research and clinical settings. Providing a standard approach to writing cytogenetic laboratory reports, the guide further covers useful guidance on implementing International System for Human Cytogenetic Nomenclature in reports. Part one of the guide explores chromosomal, FISH, and microarray analysis in constitutional cytogenetic analyses, while part two looks at acquired abnormalities in cancers. Both sections provide illustrative examples of chromosomal abnormalities and how to communicate these findings in standardized laboratory reports.
International Review of Cell and Molecular Biology presents comprehensive reviews and current advances in cell and molecular biology. Articles address structure and control of gene expression, nucleocytoplasmic interactions, control of cell development and differentiation, and cell transformation and growth. The series has a world-wide readership, maintaining a high standard by publishing invited articles on important and timely topics authored by prominent cell and molecular biologists. * Authored by some of the foremost scientists in the field * Provides comprehensive reviews and current advances* Wide range of perspectives on specific subjects* Valuable reference material for advanced undergraduates, graduate students and professional scientists
About the Author
Kwang Jeon received his Ph.D. in cell physiology at King’s College, University of London, UK, in 1964 and taught at SUNY Buffalo and University of Tennessee. His research was concerned with the biogenesis and function of cell components in two major areas: Integration of intracellular symbionts into host cells leading to the acquisition of new cell components and cell variation; Membrane-protein recycling during endo- and exocytosis.
