Physics 11th Edition Asia Edition
Physics 11E provides students with the skills that they need to succeed in this course, by focusing on conceptual understanding; problem solving; and providing real-world applications and relevance. Conceptual Examples, Concepts and Calculations problems, and Check Your Understanding questions help students to understand physics principles. Math Skills boxes, multi-concept problems, and Examples with reasoning steps help students to improve their reasoning skills while solving problems. “The Physics Of” boxes show students how physics principles are relevant to their everyday lives.
Available/sold separately, WileyPLUS to accompany Physics 11E continues to build on rich multimedia enhancements that encourage student engagement. ORION, the adaptive study guide, diagnoses student’s strengths and weaknesses, leading them to the specific content and media needed to help them effectively learn. All ORION practice problems have hints and feedback. The course includes 259 short lecture videos, one for each course section, that explain the basic concepts and learning objectives. In addition, 150 Chalkboard problem-solving videos and guided online tutorials along with vector drawing questions enrich WileyPLUS. These features are designed to facilitate flipping the classroom, and to encourage students to remain within the WileyPLUS environment, as opposed to pursuing the “pay-for-solutions” websites and searching uncurated web content that short circuits and can confuse their learning process.

To respond to the increasing need to feed the world’s population as well as an ever greater demand for a balanced and healthy diet there is a continuing need to produce improved new cultivars or varieties of plants, particularly crop plants. The strategies used to produce these are increasingly based on our knowledge of relevant science, particularly genetics, but involves a multidisciplinary understanding that optimizes the approaches taken.
Principles of Plant Genetics and Breeding, 2nd Edition introduces both classical and molecular tools for plant breeding. Topics such as biotechnology in plant breeding, intellectual property, risks, emerging concepts (decentralized breeding, organic breeding), and more are addressed in the new, updated edition of this text. Industry highlight boxes are included throughout the text to contextualize the information given through the professional experiences of plant breeders. The final chapters provide a useful reference on breeding the largest and most common crops.
- Up-to-date edition of this bestselling book incorporating the most recent technologies in the field
- Combines both theory and practice in modern plant breeding
- Updated industry highlights help to illustrate the concepts outlined in the text
- Self assessment questions at the end of each chapter aid student learning
- Accompanying website with artwork from the book available to instructors

This textbook is written by a renowned haematologist with more than 30 years of experience in teaching haematology to medical students and whose pedagogical and writing skills are widely admired within the field. Following closely the current curriculum of Imperial College London, medical students, trainee nurses and biomedical science students from other institutions will find the textbook equally suitable, since it includes the core student haematology curriculum as recommended by the Royal College of Pathologists and the British Society of Haematology expert group. This text will be equally suitable for students outside the UK.
The textbook takes a useful, practical approach, incorporating self-evaluation questions and learning objectives that give students not only the information needed to understand the topic but also clear indications on the core knowledge that students are required to know in order to progress within the field of haematology.
