Prescott’s Microbiology 10th Edition
The author team of “Prescott’s Microbiology” continues the tradition of past editions by providing a balanced, comprehensive introduction to all major areas of microbiology. This balance makes Microbiology appropriate for microbiology majors and mixed majors courses. The authors have introduced a number of pedagogical elements designed to facilitate student learning. They also remain focused on readability, artwork, and the integration of several key themes (including evolution, ecology and diversity) throughout the text, making an already superior text even better.

Buy Biology; A Global Approach with MasteringBiology access card 10e (ISBN 9781292008752) if you need access to Mastering as well, and save money on this brilliant resource. This is a Pearson Global Edition. The Pearson Editorial team worked closely with educators around the world to include content especially relevant to students outside of the United States. The Tenth Edition of the best-selling text Campbell BIOLOGY helps launch students to success in biology through its clear and engaging narrative, superior pedagogy, and innovative use of art and photos to promote student learning. The Tenth Edition helps students develop a deeper understanding of biology by making connections visually across chapters and building the scientific skills needed for success in upper-level courses. * New Make Connections Figures pull together content from different chapters visually, helping students see “big picture” relationships. * New Scientific Skills Exercises in every chapter use real data to build key skills needed for biology, including data analysis, graphing, experimental design, and math skills. * New examples show students how our ability to sequence DNA and proteins rapidly and inexpensively is transforming every subfield of biology. Mastering brings learning full circle and is the most effective and widely used online homework, tutorial, and assessment system for the sciences. Over three million science students are currently using Mastering for the following features: * Before class, reading quizzes, pre-lecture quizzes, and formative assessments test students’ knowledge of the material and ensure they come to class prepared. * During class, Learning Catalytics and existing Mastering media like simulations, Flix, Videos, etc, keep your students engaged and bring tough topics to life. * After class, “traditional” homework, quizzes, and testing automatically assess your students’ comprehension of the material and provide opportunities for remediation. This product is the book alone, and does NOT come with access to Mastering. This title can be supported by Mastering, an online homework and tutorial system which can be fully integrated into an instructor’s course.

Inspired by Rainer Maria Rilke’s Letters to a Young Poet, Edward O. Wilson has distilled sixty years of teaching into a book for students, young and old. Wilson threads these twenty-one letters, each richly illustrated, with autobiographical anecdotes that illuminate his career – both his successes and his failures – and his motivations for becoming a biologist. At a time when our survival is more than ever linked to our understanding of science, Wilson insists that success in the sciences does not depend on mathematical skill but rather a passion for finding a problem and solving it. From the collapse of stars to the exploration of rain forests and the oceans’ depths, Wilson instills a love of the innate creativity of science and a respect for the human being’s modest place in the planet’s ecosystem, in his readers.

A comprehensive and mechanistic perspective on fruit ripening, emphasizing commonalities and differences between fruit groups and ripening processes.
Fruits are an essential part of the human diet and contain important phytochemicals that provide protection against heart disease and cancers. Fruit ripening is of importance for human health and for industry-based strategies to harness natural variation, or genetic modification, for crop improvement.
This book covers recent advances in the field of plant genomics and how these discoveries can be exploited to understand evolutionary processes and the complex network of hormonal and genetic control of ripening. The book explains the physiochemical and molecular changes in fruit that impact its quality, and recent developments in understanding of the genetic, molecular and biochemical basis for colour, flavour and texture. It is a valuable resource for plant and crop researchers and professionals, agricultural engineers, horticulturists, and food scientists.
- Reviews the physiochemical and molecular changes in fruit which impact flavour, texture, and colour
- Covers recent advances in genomics on the genetic, molecular, and biochemical basis of fruit quality
- Integrates information on both hormonal and genetic control of ripening
- Relevant for basic researchers and applied scientists
