Microbiology: An Introduction 12th Global Edition
Master Microbiology where it matters. Everywhere. An engaging and clear approach to learning complex microbiology topics and theory Praised for its exceptionally clear presentation of complex topics, this #1-selling text for microbiology non-majors provides a careful balance of concepts and applications, proven art that teaches and the most robust, dynamic media in MasteringMicrobiology. The Twelfth Edition ofTortora, Funke, and Case’s Microbiology: An Introduction focuses on big picture concepts and themes in microbiology, encouraging students to visualize and synthesize tough topics such as microbial metabolism, immunology, and microbial genetics. The text and accompanying resources also help students make connections between microbiology theory and disease diagnosis, treatment, and prevention. MasteringMicrobiology is not included. Students, if MasteringMicrobiology is a recommended/mandatory component of the course, please ask your instructor for the correct ISBN. MasteringMicrobiology should only be purchased when required by an instructor. Instructors, contact your Pearson representative for more information.
Human Perspectives 3A/3B has been written to address the updated units of the Human Biology course. Each chapter features information under clear subject headings making it easy to navigate, read and assimilate. The content is highly illustrated with photographs, electron micrograph images and annotated diagrams, which are designed to engage students and to encourage scientific thinking, investigation and problem solving. The text is supported by a NelsonNet website and NelsonNetBook.
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.

The Fourth Edition of Microbiology with Diseases by Taxonomy is the most cutting-edge microbiology book available, offering unparalleled currency, accuracy, and assessment. The state-of-the-art approach includes 18 new Video Tutors written and developed by the author to walk students through key microbiology concepts, bringing the textbook to life. QR codes in the textbook enable students to use their smartphone or tablet to instantly interact with these step-by-step tutorials and visualize important concepts and processes. Compelling clinical case studies and emerging disease case studies give students opportunities to apply new knowledge and explore real-world microbiology. Student comprehension is ensured with end-of-chapter practice that encompasses both visual and conceptual understanding. This edition retains the hallmark art program and clear writing style that have made Dr. Robert W. Bauman’s book an engaging and successful introductory text.
Pollinators play a vital role in ecosystem health and are essential to ensuring food security. With declines in both managed and wild pollinator populations in recent years, scientists and regulators have sought answers to this problem and have explored implementing steps to protect pollinator populations now and for the future. Pesticide Risk Assessment for Pollinators focuses on the role pesticides play in impacting bee populations and looks to develop a risk assessment process, along with the data to inform that process, to better assess the potential risks that can accompany the use of pesticide products.
Pesticide Risk Assessment for Pollinators opens with two chapters that provide a biological background of both Apis and non-Apis species of pollinators. Chapters then present an overview of the general regulatory risk assessment process and decision-making processes. The book then discusses the core elements of a risk assessment, including exposure estimation, laboratory testing, and field testing. The book concludes with chapters on statistical and modeling tools, and proposed additional research that may be useful in developing the ability to assess the impacts of pesticide use on pollinator populations.
Summarizing the current state of the science surrounding risk assessment for Apis and non-Apis species, Pesticide Risk Assessment for Pollinators is a timely work that will be of great use to the environmental science and agricultural research communities.
- Assesses pesticide risk to native and managed pollinators
- Summarizes the state of the science in toxicity testing and risk assessment
- Provides valuable biological overviews of both Apis and non-Apis pollinators
- Develops a plausible overall risk assessment framework for regulatory decision making
- Looks towards a globally harmonized approach for pollinator toxicity and risk assessment
